Online Series : Circular Economy for A Resilient Future in The Post-Pandemic Era

To change or not to change? That is the question.
 
The coronavirus pandemic absolutely disrupts how we used to produce and consume. Yet, the decrease of economic activities lead to huge cuts in carbon emissions. The rising unemployment rate and the severe drop in oil prices are telling us that the world is no longer the same.

In Chinese language, the word “crisis” is composed of two parts: ‘danger’ and ‘opportunity’. With all efforts trying to recover the economy, will we build back better? Or will the crisis cause irreversible impacts that take generations to recover? Many signs show that the business reconstruction and large scale of recovery plan creates a unique chance for us to tackle the economic and climate crisis at the same time. It all depends on how we perceive the risks and change for the better.

We firmly believe that the Circular Economy will help the world rise stronger after COVID-19, and we can make it all together. Are you with us?
