Currently, only 9% of the economy is circular, yet the circular economy presents vast opportunities socially, environmentally and economically.
There is a need to demonstrate how cities can be reimagined as circular systems that can make urban spaces more resource-efficient, enhance liveability and slow down climate change.
The Circularity Gap report predicts that the circular economy needs to almost double to 17% to keep the planet sustainable.
Against this backdrop, the Circular Campus Programme supports universities on their zero waste journey by fostering circular economy innovation on campuses and accelerating the best solutions to make them scalable. It is to catalyze circular innovation from the ground up. By partnering with university campuses, a series of workshops and a toolkit aim to create pockets of circularity within cities that are sustainable and scalable. Campuses are a place of innovation, open experimentation, and intellectual power. They are diverse mini archetypes of larger cities where people work, study, shop, live and eat. The perfect living lab that can speak for larger circular innovation.
