At this year’s Bodensee Talks, we want to take an in-depth look at the form of economy in which economy and ecology are in harmony. The concept of the Circular Economy aims to decouple human well-being and economic activities from environmental damage. If this goal is to be achieved, the way we produce and consume as a society must change fundamentally: Away from the “throwaway society” or “throwaway economy.” The goal: a regenerative system in which we use fewer resources, produce less waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We are convinced that this topic concerns us all – in business as well as in private life!
Eveline Lemke, former Minister of Economics of Rhineland-Palatinate and an expert in the Circular Economy, and Dr. Nicole Graf, Global Co-Lead “Digital x Sustainability” Innovation at BASF, will accompany us.
