12: The renewability of societal resources

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

By 2050 the circular economy approach will be widely implemented in Europe. Resources used in 2050 will be a mix of bio resources, energy resources and mineral resources, the latter still comprising the largest volume. This breakout session will discuss the renewability of each of these resources and whether renewability can indeed be achieved in our current economic system.
