Panel discussion: People at the heart of the circular economy


12 oktober 2020

For the research project “People at the heart of the circular economy”, organized by Het Groene Brein and the Goldschmeding Foundation, we ask you to share your insights and deepen our understanding of the social aspect of the circular economy. We are looking for people who have experience with circular working. The idea behind this project is that the circular economy is strongly focused on sustainability in a physical sense. However, little attention is paid to the social aspect and the role of people. With this research we try to identify paradoxes, dilemmas and opportunities that arise on the social side of the circular economy.

The research is now in its third and final stage. In the first two rounds, various dilemmas related to the social side of the circular economy have emerged. These dilemmas are divided into 4 topics that we would like to focus on in a panel session.

You are more than welcome to join one of these panel sessions and share your experiences. To register, please email
