Having explored in depth the topic of our industrialised societies’ relationship with materials, as well as the need for gradual decoupling between development and resource impact, Tim Jackson joins the DIF and discusses the potential of the circular economy at scale.
The global resonance of Tim’s work gave a center stage to a question which previously remained somewhat rhetoric: is a system rethink possible, and what are the key barriers standing in the way of both the private and the public sector?
Alongside Tim, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Joss Blériot and Ken Webster discuss the role of finance, money, policymakers and society in transitioning towards a positive model fit for the 21st century
