Webinar: The circular economy’s potential for fostering decent jobs

Start/End date
Coordination Group activity type

This 16 June webinar, organised by Circle Economy,  with a speakers from another CG member organisation, IndustriAll, discussed  The circular economy’s potential for fostering decent jobs, exploring the interlinkages between the transition to a more circular economy and quality jobs, and drawing on Circle Economy’s recent report on Jobs & Skills in the Circular Economy: State of Play and Future Pathways.

The circular economy has an important role to play in the post-COVID-19 recovery in rebuilding a system that can withstand shocks and deliver a future-proof labour market. However, the extent to which its full potential is to be deployed in European labour markets remains to be seen.
