North Sweden Cleantech

Circular economy

Circular economy is all about a framework for an economy that is restorative and regenerative by design. Unlike in todays linear economy, in a circular economy we see everything as a resource for something else – waste doesn’t exist. How do business models need to change to suit a circular economy? What does this new way of thinking mean for the business community? How can profitable business models be combined with social and environmental responsibility? How can we design products right from the beginning, and do things even better, instead of just less bad?

We offer several interesting technical visits sights under the theme circular economy. We also offer lectures on basic circular economy where these questions and more are answered. Some parts of the activities offered within the theme of circular economy can lead to a minor cost for the visitor.
