How can we work together to implement
Circular Economy ?

We are a diverse cohort of 30+ committed individuals wanting to shape the future of production and consumption in the Métropole Lémanique.

We represent all segments of society and we are willing to create meaningful change in our own context and across sectoral boundaries.

Waste affects everyone – citizens, students, academics, entrepreneurs, corporates, policymakers, activists, artists, thought leaders, innovators and change-makers – our approach is to tackle this challenge jointly.

By convening around a common purpose, we constitute a generative social field from which to act and evolve as a whole.
