The transition towards sustainability (healthy planet, healthy people, healthy profits) requires new behaviours.  

 

Specifically, we need to set a goal of never letting garbage reach a landfill or garbage dump. 

 

Instead, we embrace a Circular Economy in which we reuse what we throw away over and over and over again. New industry standards for the use of waste materials need to be developed. 

 

Meet the Dutch companies at the forefront of the transition towards Circular Economy practices. 

 

What aspects of the implementation can you adopt and adapt locally?

 CSTI - What inspires us:

 

We are a multidisciplinary team of researchers and practitioners who believe that the scientific and technological knowledge we develop is a legacy trust we create for the community.

Some people are artists, others give inspirational speeches.  We deliver understanding that can be adapted to solve ecological and industrial problems.  The eagerness with which this understanding is received and used is what inspires us to do our work.

We  must treat the earth well. It was not given to us by our parents, it is loaned to us by our children.

Mtunze ardhi vyema. Hamkupewa na wazazi, bali mlikopeshwa na wazawa wenu. (Swahili)
