Alice Grindhammer is the founder of CRCLR, a circular economy house in Berlin. In the podcast, she will introduce CRCLR and the ideas behind its development, inviting listeners to imagine a more and more circular world - because, as French President Emmanuel Macron recently remarked, there is 'no planet B’.

During the talk, Alice will be sharing some of CRCLR’s findings on their journey towards creating circular solutions, included the intention to expand the CRCLR house, and in the Berlin-based project “Schön wie wir”. Starting the transformation towards a circular way of living, building and being is not just about implementing new designs, it represents a fundamental mindset shift.
