Description

SINGAPORE Circular Economy Mapping Session – 08/02/2018

This Circular Economy Club (CEC) event will expand your knowledge around circular economy initiatives taking place in SINGAPORE. It is also an opportunity to socialise with other circular economy professionals and brainstorm future projects.

What is the circular economy ?

Looking beyond the current take-make-dispose extractive industrial model, a circular economy aims to redefine growth, focusing on positive society-wide benefits. It entails gradually decoupling economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, and designing waste out of the system. Underpinned by a transition to renewable energy sources, the circular model builds economic, natural, and social capital. It is based on three principles:

  • Design out waste and pollution
  • Keep products and materials in use
  • Regenerate natural systems

During the session, you will work in teams to identify circular initiatives happening in Singapore, across different sectors and types of organisations.

At the end of the collaborative session you will get a clear idea of the state of the circular economy in Singapore. You will also have the chance to learn about what other peers are doing worldwide, as CEC will share the outcomes of all sessions happening globally, online for free. After the session, the list of stakeholders will be publicly available on CEC’s website for participants and the general public.

Who is the event for? The event is open to all individuals who are currently engaged in circular economy thinking and/or implementing circular economy solutions. These could be :

  • Architects, Designers, Engineers and Makers
  • Established companies and Start-ups in the energy sector, agriculture, construction, textiles/fashion, electronics, renewable energies, etc
  • Consultants, Business leaders and Strategists
  • Education professionals and Researchers
