With a symbolic launch on World Environment Day, the first World Circular Economy Forum brought together more than 1500 participants from business, policy and civil society from 150 countries last week. All came to Helsinki to discuss the circular economy. The vivid exchange highlights the need to create an economy that enables us to live within planetary boundaries.
Circulus and three other research groups met last Tuesday in Berlin to present their project, to network and to exchange ideas. The discussions covered challenges of interdisciplinary research, methods and theories, within the area of bioeconomy and societal transformation research.
The Objectives of the Selection and Specification workshop were to develop a common understanding of circular economy between the participants from Industry associations and Science. We discussed criteria for and selection of appropriate case studies for the investigation of innovations for the circular economy. It also worked as a first matching of mutual expectations and reconciling the realization in the Circulus project.
