How can consumers lead the effort to keep electronics in the loop and not lose valuable resources? Who can support them and how? Who needs which skills for this? The EU Circular Talk “The Circular Electronics Initiative: Insights on Skills” took a close look at these questions together with experts, retailers, city representatives, and policymakers.
The transition from a linear to a circular economy is one of the most important imperatives of our time, a transition that requires a fundamental change in the way we produce and consume. A circular approach to production and consumption reduces emissions and pollution, increases competitiveness, and boosts innovation – in short, it makes our economies and societies more sustainable and resilient for the future.
Looking for effective ways to enable circular behaviour change in the electronics, plastics and textile sectors? Then, the Consumer Insight Action Panel (CIAP) is the right framework. Through a hands-on collaboration process with businesses, start-ups, NGOs, researchers and European policy makers, CIAP aims to mobilise and support frontrunners in enabling circular behaviours.
