Is a circular economy not enough?

In its thematic focus on a ‘Circular Society’, the German Hans Sauer Foundation and its social design lab address the prevailing structures and practices of linearity. They go well beyond purely economic concerns and activities such as those of product design, manufacturing, waste management or the ‘circular economy action imperatives’ including reducing, repurposing, recycling and much more. Its position paper ‘Paths towards a circular society’ also looks at societal concerns and places special attention on how we can establish social practices that enable circularity, but also change the way that we think and act as a society.
