A global road map for an inclusive circular economy – from concept to action

How could a collective process facilitate a vision for an inclusive global circular economy transition, help policy co-ordination and increase the level of ambition for the circular economy to address the triple planetary crisis?

Many governments have or are preparing national circular economy road maps. Yet, on the global level there is no common vision for an inclusive circular transition. A global process could support policy exchanges, sharing lessons learned on a national level and unlock the pathway to a global inclusive circular economy. To increase the level of ambition for the circular economy and adequately address the triple planetary crisis, this session explores how a global road map process could enable ambitious actors to come forward and lead the way, identify areas for collective action and propose solutions that need to be advanced at the international level.
