Mapping the possible CE futures through scenario exploration: presentation and open feedback session
ReTraCE organizes an open-feedback session about its next deliverable on Mapping the possible Circular Economy futures through scenario exploration. This session, will introduce you to the research that they performed in exploring the potential futures that the circular economy can generate.
There is a need to understand how the circular economy creates a new vision and new expectations to shape the future . Some research studies explored how the circular economy creates a set of shared expectations and a shared vision of the future economy. The research from Bauwens et al. (2020) advanced this conversation by proposing a more plural approach to what kind of futures can the circular economy generate with the intention to explore the potential and plurality of the circular economy by exploring different governance approaches and technology developments. The study of Lowe & Genovese (2022) also contributes to this conversation by highlighting the importance of other critical factors, such as the role played by relations of production in shaping alternative futures.
ReTraCE’s research includes the dimensions proposed by Lowe & Genovese (2022) and Bauwens et al. (2020) to generate a more exhaustive mapping of the potential futures of the circular economy. This has resulted in 11 different scenarios.
This session also will gather opinions from members of the ReTraCE consortium on how they imagine the future circular economy will look like.
This event is relevant for Work Package 2 and Work Package 4 of JUST2CE project, as it will be discussing about plausible Circular Economy futures and the configuration these could take.
