How can we work together as key actors of the Arc Lémanique
to implement Circular Economy in the region ? Can we move beyond waste ? This implies a substantial transformation of our consumption habits and production methods. This Lab will focus on shifting from our current linear and extractive economic paradigm to a circular, regenerative one.
Beyond Waste is a social laboratory to co-create the roadmap for this transition, and start walking it.
Accelerate2030 is a program co-initiated by Impact Hub Geneva and the UNDP, with a mission to scale internationally the impact of entrepreneurs working towards achieving positive social and environmental change contributing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We believe that a paradigm shift towards sustainable business practices is underway, and while providing support in conventional areas of business, we also enable entrepreneurs to integrate sustainable corporate culture through our leadership coaching.
