Past Event | No more waste: A Circular Economy Collage

This workshop delved into the critical issues surrounding our consumption of natural resources and waste generation. Led by sustainability experts Katharina Baudouin-Goerlitz and Rajul Priyadarshini, participants gained a deeper understanding of the limitations of our current "linear" economic model and explored the promising possibilities of a circular economy. 

Here are some key takeaways from the workshop: 

  • Understanding our Impact: We explored the environmental consequences of our consumption habits and waste generation. 

  • Shifting Towards Circularity: The workshop introduced the circular economy as a more sustainable alternative. This model focuses on extending product lifespans, reducing waste, and keeping resources in use for longer. 

  • Business Transformation: We discussed how businesses can adapt their models to embrace circularity, potentially including strategies like product design for repair and reuse. 

  • Collective Change: The workshop emphasized the importance of collective action in building a more sustainable future. By working together, individuals and businesses can make a significant difference. 

The Circular Economy Collage workshop provided a valuable platform for raising awareness and empowering participants to become part of the solution. 

This event was organised as part of the initiative “Circularity, 3-days to Rethink, Reuse and Recycle”, during the Joint Year of Sustainability France Singapore (JYOS) and in conjunction with the CleanEnviro Summit in Singapore from 19 to 21 June 2024.
