Make Mothers Matter is organising in partnership with the European Economic and Social Committee a seminar on “the Role of Families in achieving the Circular Economy” on the occasion of the International Day of Families on 14th May.
As the Behavioural Study on Consumers’ Engagement in the Circular Economy recently published by the European Commission 2018 points out, consumer participation on the Circular Economy has received little attention until now. Thus to move towards a Circular Economy, the consumption/ demand side needs to be well understood and studied. Consumers play a pivotal role in transitioning to a circular economy.
At this conference, we will bring together different experts and stakeholders at various levels of action, from policy-makers to community-led initiatives combining a top-down and bottom-up approach. We will analyse how our society can achieve economic progress by including measures of social inclusion, equal opportunities and justice, and how families can be supported in order to contribute in the transition to a more circular economy. The aim is to exchange and build a constructive dialogue among different actors of sustainable development in Europe.
This event is an occasion for MMM to present how we are engaging families in the circular economy at the Horizon 2020 research project CIRC4life.
