Circular Economy in Motion brings together academics, business owners, entrepreneurs, politicians, non-profit organisations and multiple industrial sectors to create an online gathering where they can exchange expert knowledge, experiences, methodologies and tools that contribute to the application of Circular Economy principles in different Latin American contexts.
Circular Economy in Motion is funded by The Royal Academy of Engineers through its programme 'Frontiers of Engineering for Development'. It will showcase good practices mainly from Latin America and other emerging projects funded by RAEng.
The network, however, encourages everyone from around the world to come together and showcase best practices and explore capacity building.
Our aim is to act as a platform to transfer knowledge and skills to network members, with the long-term goal of expanding new collaborations from countries that make it self-sustaining.
The bootcamp aims to:
Develop new skills and knowledge of entrepreneurship in the circular economy that can support the development of this topic in Latin American countries and other continents with emerging economies.
Generate multidisciplinary and international collaborations to form a network of contacts on circular economy in Latin America and other emerging regions.
Disseminate and share stories of exemplary practices that can accelerate the transfer of knowledge from different projects in Latin America and other emerging countries.
Circular Economy in Motion is a multinational collaboration that fosters best-practice and solution-based approaches to solve global challenges established by the UN Sustainable Development Goals such as:
Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all: Circular economy initiatives could bring new types of jobs and industry by developing new business models.
Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation: Circular Economy initiatives can help to tackle lack of collaborations to embrace technology an innovation.
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns: Circular Economy initiatives can change current consumption and production patterns, ensuring more sustainable ways of living by embracing close loop systems.
