ABOUT the PROJECT

ABOUT US

WHY? 

 

The official discussions on the topic often center on the technological solutions, while little attention is paid to societal norms, citizens’ willingness and motivation to be active in the Circular Economy.  We believe that citizens are active thinkers, beyond just consumers of goods. Citizens are equally important for creating value in the Circular Economy, along with businesses, municipalities and governments. 

WHAT? 

 

Our project is about the circular activities of citizens, the value of these activities is usually under-explored. During the next three years (2021-2023) we study what citizens are already doing to minimize waste and prolong the life of goods through repair, reuse and recycle. Our aim is to learn about citizens’ motivations, everyday routines and practical strategies to be more circular.  

HOW? 

 

By reaching out to social movements that support the principles of Circular Economy, we will connect with citizens that are at the forefront of performing circular activities. We will collect the circular stories of their personal transformations and make them visible to inspire others.  We are open to partner with movements, initiatives, projects, bloggers and any educational institutions interested in the Circular Economy.
