Beyond the Unwasted
September 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The Artist and the Others within the “Beyond the Unwasted“ conference , presents a special presentation & award session.
The circular economy is a model of production and consumption, which involves sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products as long as possible. In this way, the life cycle of products is extended.
In practice, it implies reducing waste to a minimum. When a product reaches the end of its life, its materials are kept within the economy wherever possible. These can be productively used again and again, thereby creating further value.
In this period where finding innovative solutions to our current climatic and societal emergency, the circular economy makes both environmental and business sense: there is less waste and growth no longer requires an increasing extraction and consumption of resources, energy, water and primary raw materials. *
