11th IWACP – International workshop on advances in cleaner production
On the 15th of July, Maddalena Ripa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) will participate to the 11th IWACP, the “International Workshop on Advances in Cleaner Production” with a presentation on “Circular Economy beyond Technology. Lessons, Narratives and Research Directions”.
The IWACP is a multi/interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of information and research results on technologies, concepts and policies based on Cleaner Production and conceived to assist the desired transition to a sustainable society. This year, the 11th edition will focus on the theme “Environmental Challenges: Action or Reaction to Save the Planet? Local and Global Strategies for Ecological and Societal Transition”.
Abstract of the presentation:
The case for solving the environmental crisis through a circular economy (CE) transition is gaining
momentum. Nevertheless, environmental issues are often characterised as complex issues, because their causes may be multiple and interrelated, their impacts may be uncertain and potential solutions may cause unintended consequences. What is the CE able to do, not able to do, pretending to do, or ignoring in the face of these challenges? In this talk, based on recently published papers and on ongoing research, I will discuss different ways of framing circular economy, along with implications for research and practice. What I propose is an integration of theoretical and methodological approaches of multiple disciplines with the aim to deliver more than the sum of its parts and to broadening and deepening an understanding of the issues as interconnected social, political, economic and technical problems.
