The traditional linear model of industrial value creation (“Extract - produce - consume - throw away”) is increasingly reaching its limits in times of scarce resources, high greenhouse gas emissions and ongoing climate change as well as growing amounts of waste worldwide. Environmentalists as well as economists have therefore long been calling for a transformation towards a circular, resource-conserving economic model. Reusing and recycling products can slow down the use of natural resources, reduce landscape and habitat disruption and help to limit biodiversity loss. Also, the circular economy can reduce greenhouse gas emission.

This panel discussion brings together international researchers and circular economy experts within the Germany alumni community. They will look at various aspects of the circular economy, discuss how it can be achieved and talk about the potentials and obstacles to its implementation.

Join us for a discussion on circular economy, discover different perspectives and get to know best practices!
