Taking a deep dive into the world of business and industry, two-time Telly® Award and Emmy® Award winning filmmaker Graham Sheldon and global sustainability expert Prof. Dr Wayne Visser explore the meaning and applications of the circular economy, a concept that is revolutionizing the way businesses operate. Going “circular” refers to the necessary change from our current take-make-waste linear economy to a borrow-use-return circular economy (sometimes also referred to as the zero-waste or cradle-to-cradle economy).
The documentary captures insights from experts from the likes of the World Economic Forum and the Universities of Cambridge and Harvard and examples from Europe, Latin America and Africa.
