This session will focus on scalable local technologies and youth innovation as the driving forces to implement a circular economy in Africa. Many innovative products and services from Africa also have global potential. Scaling up existing solutions will play an important role in bringing economic and social benefits, while also reducing the negative impact of our linear economy on the environment. Youth innovation will be showcased through presentations by the winners of the circular economy business challenge and circular economy hackathon organised by the African Leadership University, sharing with the world the way forward for the African continent.
