What’s wrong with the Circular Economy? – A conversation with Thomas Berker to get to the bottom of our consumption routines

“What’s wrong with the Circular Economy?”

Circular economy (CE) is everybody’s darling because who could possibly be against reusing, recycling, and repairing things instead of throwing away? However, at least judging by the recent emergence of highly cited scientific articles that are critical of central aspects of CE concepts and their application, the tide seems to be turning. Based on Thomas’ recent research and scientific insights, we will form a greater understanding of the do’s and don’ts of the circular economy on a structural and individual level.

Join us in our upcoming session on February 28th at 5 pm for a critical perspective on the circular economy!
