SCIENCE TALKS: How can the sustainable paradigm guide us towards a socially responsible circular transition?

November 11, 2021 @ 15:00 - 16:00

We have been working with the sustainability paradigm for a while now. It has guided transformation and reconfigurations of economic, social, and environmental aspects of our society. More recently, circular economy has become the approach used for creating systemic change.
Moreover, an increasing concern for social justice and inclusion regarding circularity has risen. What can we learn from the sustainability paradigm and how can a circular economy meet the human needs within the planetary boundaries?

Speaker: Morten Ryberg, Assistant Professor, DTU, Section for Quantitative Sustainability Assessment.
Morten is specialized in LCA and environmental impact assessment, business, and economy and he holds a Phd in Integrating Planetary Boundaries into Life Cycle Assessment.

This fall, we host the event series ‘Designing the Irresistible Circular Society’ consisting of 8 Science Talks and BLOXHUB Debates:
How do we ensure a sustainable future and how will our buildings and cities be created and by whom? Which values and materials will characterize today’s and tomorrow’s society? Building a circular economy in the built environment is high on the agenda. This series addresses the how to’s through eight events in the format of Science Talks and BLOXHUB Debates where we will engage city planners, policy makers, decision makers, clients, investors, and users; present the latest research and experiences and ask the tough question: How do we create the irresistible circular society?

Partners: Arup, 3XN/GXN, Lendager Group, The Royal Danish Academy, Danish Design Centre, Build, Aalborg University and BLOXHUB.
