Plastics are remarkably convenient, inexpensive and useful. But their durability means plastic debris is everywhere. It is choking our oceans and its animals, and potentially moving toxins up the food chain. It represents a growing loss of economic value and source of avoidable greenhouse gases. Canada and the EU’s Oceans Plastic Charter, NGO efforts and innovative businesses are aiming at circular solutions to keep plastics in the economy and out of nature.

Wayne Visser,  Professor of Integrated Value & Chair of Sustainable Transformation, Antwerp Management School
“Unless we go to circular, it's game over for the planet."

After years spent working on sustainability, Wayne Visser believes we are on the cusp of a major revolution - nothing short of the next industrial revolution. The time for fear-mongering and demonising companies has past. Now is the time for innovative solutions and positive action. This is nowhere more true than in the do-or-die challenge of creating a circular economy. A sobering thought. But Visser brings solutions - solutions to the challenges of pollution, resource depletion, and waste –a blueprint for the greener future.

Disrupting the Status Quo:Sustainability Provocateur, Designer, Sociologist, Experimental Educator and Social Change Maker. Acaroglu's work illuminates the ways design impacts our perspectives and behaviours. Then she goes a step further. Looking at the stories we tell ourselves in our daily lives, in the myriad consumer choices we make, she sees the urge to make sustainable choices sabotaged by mistaken beliefs about materials and their properties. It's a big challenge, but adopting circular economy values and systems can leverage design and consumer culture as a potent catalyst for a massive change.

​“Humanity will change more in the next 20 years than they have in the last 300”

Making connections and advancing our thinking is one of the keys to progress. Futurist Gerd Leonhard is connecting the dots to our data-driven future – championing the benefits and highlighting the risks. Gerd’s vision of our future is that of great potential to make the world a better place for all. But he’s quick to point out the potholes on the road to a circular economy as well highlighting the technologies that will impact our lives the most, and outlining the human-scaled answers needed to ensure the 21st century landscape is a place we all want to live.
