A JUST TRANSITION TO THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Project description

A just inclusive transition to circular economy

Natural resources are extracted and transformed into products, which are eventually discarded. As many natural resources are finite, it is important to keep materials in circulation for as long as possible. This makes the transition to circular economy more vital than ever, but is a responsible, inclusive, and socially just transition to a circular economy possible or even desirable? What technical, political, and social factors can enable or hamper such a transformation? The EU-funded JUST2CE project will answer these questions. It will explore the economic, societal, gender and policy implications of the circular economy paradigm. The project’s findings will shed light on how to ensure democratic and participatory mechanisms when designing and managing such technology.
