Circular Economy: Take, make, use, REPEAT!
How circular economy model supports the city’s sustainability, resilience, and competitiveness? What key lessons can local governments and industries, as well as communities do to implement this system? What measures are necessary to address barriers to transitioning to a circular economy?
Take, make, use and dispose. This is how the linear economy works.
Much of the products society produces follow this path, which leads to waste and even pollution at the end of product lifecycles. A prime example is plastics, often used as packaging material, which according to the World Bank (March 2021), “A staggering 2.7 million tons of plastic waste are generated in the Philippines each year, and an estimated 20 percent ends up in the ocean.”
Is it possible to remove waste and pollution from the economic equation? What are the possible ways to repair, reuse, recycle and return products or their components throughout its lifecycle, essentially avoiding the wastebasket in the process?
Liveable Cities Challenge Philippines in cooperation with Globe Telecom is convening this online conversation to explore the ‘Circular Economy: take, make, use, repeat’, with industry experts and NGOs.
