Delivering the circular economy: a toolkit for policymakers
Published in June 2015
How do you convince work colleagues that your bright idea isn’t just another burden to their existing workload? Working with policymakers at the regional and city level in Italy, Luigi Acquaviva has had to learn a few tricks when it comes to turning environmental ideas into practice. Meanwhile in Scotland, Cheryl McCulloch had the job of exciting Glasgow businesses and policymakers about the circular economyA systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. It is based on three principles, driven by design: eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials (at their highest value), and regenerate nature.. The circular city scan they produced managed to turn heads and opinions towards a new way of collaborating. Join this conversation to see what you can learn from Luigi and Cheryl's experiences.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation works to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. We develop and promote the idea of a circular economy, and work with business, academia, policymakers, and institutions to mobilise systems solutions at scale, globally.
