DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-42] 

Making circular economy a reality requires a conducive and enabling environment. It will require coordination mechanisms at all levels of government and the involvement of all stakeholders. The transition to a circular economy, which generates new sustainable social, economic and environmental benefits, implies social dialogue and communication and education strategies, which must be active, deliberate and tailored. It will also imply innovation, regarding innovative and sustainable technologies, new interrelationships, new business models, new funding policies and new forms of governance, which have to be inclusive, with the participation and commitment of all stakeholders, especially the civil society.
