Circular Economy

PRESENTED ON SEP 28, 2018
IN YEREVAN @ VOL 26
Circular economy is a concept that has attracted great attention globally in the past decade or so. Many countries and regions are developing strategies and action plans to make their economies circular--moving away from the traditional linear extract, produce, consume, dispose model. They want to create economies where there is less reliance on non-renewable resources such as virgin minerals, fossil fuels, harmful emissions, and the like. The presentation by Alen Amirkhanian will show how this is supposed to happen and what it means for Armenia.

Towards a Circular Economy

BY IULIA FALCAN
@ POLICY SOLUTIONS TO CLIMATE CHANGE CHALLENGES ON APR 19, 2017

Iulia Falcan shares the concept of circular economy, refering broadly to reducing waste as much as possible on one side, and developing long lasting and re-usable day-to-day products on the other, thus limiting the negative impact that waste has on the natural environment.  

The concept of circular economy encompasses many phenomena, of varying degrees of complexity, that allow even the most seemingly disengaged person to have a positive impact on the environment.

Dipping your toe into the sea of knowledge on ways towards environmental sustainability can be overwhelming. However, be assured that there are many small changes anyone can make that will have a positive impact!

Circular economy

BY ASTRID MEIER
@ VOL 23 ON APR 18, 2018

Green Change moves transition towards a circular economy. Because we want a social and just society. Because our earth has an ecological maximum, which we already have reached some time ago. Because we can no longer wait for the government. Because we can achieve much more by working together in a bottom up setting. Because there are many partners that do not wish to wait any longer. Because it can. Not in the future in an ideal country but here and now in the Netherlands. Do you want to know how? Astrid Meier explains it all.
