How can we make our systems more resilient?
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to take a closer look at how to create more resilient systems. The RCA will bring together a panel of expert speakers on September 22 to discuss how we do this collaboratively and sustainably. We’ll hear from:
- Vanessa Corkal, one of the authors from Green Strings: Principles and conditions for a green recovery from COVID-19 in Canada,
- Shannon Miedema, with the City of Halifax climate plan,
- Upstream, looking at replacing single-use items with sustainable systems and,
- Natalia Papu Carrone with Circle Economy on their efforts to advance a circular economy in Europe.
Rarely have the flaws of our global economy come together so prominently as under our collective experience of COVID-19. Inter-dependent global supply chains, material extraction occurring at a faster rate than regeneration and an economic model focused on delivering profits and infinite growth at the expense of stability and resilience have been the hallmark of the “take-make-waste” tradition. The pandemic only served to pull the curtains on these flaws. (credit: Circle Economy)
