Circular City Week: “FLOW” ↬ 4-10 March 2019
Circular economy is a global paradigm shift with the potential to transform industry and redesign urban living. The transformative potential of circularity is not specific to a single sector but can be linked to everything from digitization and the sharing economy, to the food industry and the built environment.
Circular City Week (“CCW”) wants to give everyone a platform for knowledge and resource sharing, no matter whether you approach circularity from a design perspective, an environmental awareness standpoint, as a means to rethinking consumerism, or as an opportunity to generate new value and revenue.
The aim of the week is to inspire industry professionals across sectors, showcase international pioneers and engage students to be the future of circularity.
Different schools of thought arrive there by different means, but all agree with the core principle described by Janine Benyus’ Biomimicry philosophy — the idea is that a sustainable world already exists.
If the end goal is a human society remade into a generative enterprise this requires, at minimum, a total transformation of our value structures. A truly creative mind can only recognize that right now is the most exhilarating time to be an innovator.
