The aim of the seminar will be to give an overview of the benefits for the well- being of the people, the economy and the planet by implementing circular economy.

In line with EU’s 2050 climate neutrality goal under the Green Deal, the European Commission proposed a new Circular Economy Action Plan in March 2020, focusing on waste prevention and management and aimed at boosting growth, competitiveness and EU global leadership in the field.

92 per cent of the world’s resources – which include the metals, plastics, wood, concrete, chemicals and all other materials in circulation – are used only once, in a single product, before becoming waste.

Transitioning to a circular economy does not only aimed at reducing the negative impacts of the linear economy but  represents a systemic shift that builds long-term resilience, generates business and economic opportunities, and provides environmental and societal benefits.
