Role of Education in Implementing A Circular Economy

Exhibition at the UN Habitata assembly 2023

In the earlier centuries, when industrialization was discovered and was taking off, education played a very important role, both formal & informal. 

Then the birth of the Linear economy was deeply instilled that before realizing this solution was not forthcoming in the long term, it was a bit too late. 

However, as stakeholders are coming together to structure tailor-made policies to suit the specific regions, that are being invented to support the circular economy squarely, there’s a need for education both formally & informally. 

Top 5 points on the importance of impending education in a circular economy. 

  1. Education is essential for understanding and implementing the principles of a circular economy. 

-What better way to understand and implement the economic benefits of a circular economy, such as reduced waste and increased efficiency, so as to create effective strategies and policies. 

2. Education can help to foster a culture of sustainability and encourage people to adopt sustainable practices in their daily lives. 

-From primary schools to universities to company retreats, it’s the only way to learn about the importance of recycling, reusing, and reducing their consumption in order to promote a circular economy. 

3. Education is also essential for developing the skills and knowledge needed for a successful transition to a circular economy. 

-By teaching people about the principles and applications of circular economy, they can gain the skills and knowledge needed to develop and implement circular solutions. 

4. Education can also help to promote collaboration and partnership among stakeholders, such as businesses, governments, and communities. 

-The most effective way to create a circular society, is by working with stakeholders who can develop and implement circular solutions that benefit everyone. Trust me the solution is among us 

5. Finally, education can help to ensure that the benefits of a circular economy are shared fairly and equitably among all stakeholders. 

-Can’t stress enough about equity. By understanding the importance of a circular economy, stakeholders can work together to ensure that everyone has access to the resources and opportunities needed to benefit from a circular economy. 

We are changing the future for the next generation to enjoy a carbon-zero environment with a much-needed transition for climate change. 

You and I won’t necessarily enjoy the full benefit of what we sow but if we reconstitute and work as a circular society to build a circular economy, we just might enjoy. 

Today, purpose to educate both formally and informally.
