September 22 – Building Resiliency of Material Systems
add this event to your calendar

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.

Invited speakers:

  • International Institute for Sustainable Development – Principles for a green recovery

  • Circle Economy – Impact report on resiliency and circularity
