“Pollution is nothing but resources we’re not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we’ve been ignorant of their value.”
Our economy is based on a linear paradigm that consists in the continuous extraction of raw materials to produce and distribute – through highly polluting and inefficient processes – goods that are discarded when they are no longer useful.
This pattern contrasts sharply with the processes that take place in nature and its negative impacts on it have become increasingly serious and evident. It is therefore vital to adopt a new economic system that can satisfy our consumption requirements and promote the conservation and recovery of the environment.
The circular economy is a model aimed at reducing and counteracting ecological degradation through regenerative production and consumption processes that emulate biological cycles.
The multiple benefits of the circular economy can only be obtained through a genuine systemic transformation. To achieve this, it is necessary that all sectors of society know and clearly understand the principles and concepts of the model and have methodologies that facilitate the transition process.
Taking this into account, we develop training activities aimed at both the citizen and business sectors that introduce the fundamentals of the circular economy and present the many benefits of the model, providing tools and procedures to initiate the changes required to optimize the transition.
These activities are based on a methodology that frames the information in the particular context of each community or company and focuses on generating cultural changes that allow consolidating the adoption of new ideas and practices aligned with the circular economy and sustainability in general.
