How will the circular economy change the way we work?
Governments and business are talking about the urgent need to shift to a Circular Economy, where resources are kept in use for as long as possible by recovering, recycling and reusing products in an economy that designs waste out of its processes.
Achieving this will mean a coming era of new ways of doing business, new solutions and new regulations. A suite of new skills will be required to enable this circular economy, and pioneers have started asking themselves - what new jobs will emerge in this future economy?
Forum for the Future explores different dimensions of the near future with our series of Futures Salons. Together with our friends at the United World College Southeast Asia (UWCSEA) and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, we help you imagine what it means to operate in a circular economy.
