Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Conference 2020

Start/End date
Event type

Determining the implications of circular economy initiatives for the environment and human wellbeing is essential for successful policy development and monitoring. While technical and business aspects of circular economy initiatives receive growing attention, perspectives on power struggles, socioecological justice and trade-offs in implementation are underdeveloped.

The Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Conference 2020, hosted in September 2020 by the Chair of Societal Transition and Circular Economy at the University of Freiburg and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, calls for contributions from all disciplines that critically explore prospects, potentials, and limitations of circular economy initiatives for social justice and environmental sustainability.
