ReThink 2020 on-demand
Day 1 – 28th October

Title: Keynote Presentation: Why the circular economy is more relevant than ever

Overview:

To tackle climate change, wildlife loss and pollution, we need a new way of thinking. Sustainability efforts have focused on making the existing economy less worse, instead of redesigning the entire economic system for a thriving future. The Covid-19 pandemic has shone a light at the brittleness of the linear economic system and a number of its failures, and is demonstrating why the circular economy is now more relevant than ever.

Learnings:

– The principles underpinning a circular economy

– Examples of where Covid-19 has shown the brittleness of the linear economic model

– The importance of ambitions, commitments and transparency

– How building back better is about economic resilience and a low carbon future

Post-event actions for delegates:

– Learning opportunities on the principles of circular economy

– Research case studies and other resources

– Membership opportunities to connect to other stakeholders
