Rebecca Knoth-Letsch has passed on a lot of knowledge to our passionate delegates about the opportunities and challenges of circular economy. First of all, Rebecca started with an explanation about the difference between a linear and a circular economy. Next, she provided us with a sustainability perspective of the circular economy. With an evocative and informative how-to guide, Rebecca laid out some valuable real life examples. To put it simple, circular economy is about reusing the goods of today so that they become the resources of tomorrow.
Overall, it was very valuable to hear the viewpoint on the topic from the context of Switzerland. However, please bear in mind that the approach of the circular economy is not always the most suitable one!
