An insightful discussion on the circular economy transition at the closing event of the ReTraCE project!
Our conversation covered:
- Partnering in supply chains: fostering collaboration between public & private sectors for risk sharing.
- Tackling “linear lock-in”: Addressing the challenge of shifting from well-established linear supply chains with strong relationships between supply and demand to more circular models.
- Rethinking Global North & Global South relationships: Ensuring the transition to a circular economy doesn’t exclude traditional import/export dynamics, and fosters new collaborations for a sustainable future.
- Addressing political will and translating academic deliverables into actionable steps.
- Promoting eco-efficient and circular technologies to make green processes affordable globally.
We also discussed rethinking growth indicators, embracing plurality, and the need for a new macro-economic model to go beyond GDP, in a truly great and passionate discussion.
