The debate will focus on the European Commission’s new Circular Economy Package and its implications for Europe’s competitiveness and sustainability.
/ What does the new package promise and how does it address Europe’s competitiveness and sustainability needs?
/ Will the proposed measures be enough to make a sound shift in business models and consumer behaviour?
/ What barriers are still blocking the scaling up of circular economy practices in Europe?
/ And what can Europe do to mainstream the circular economy across the world?
