ARISE-GIN Symposium 2020: Towards Circular Regions Hybrid event - physical and online

This year ARISE organises its annual sumposium in collaboration with Greening of Industry Network (GIN) and the Sustainability Week at the University of Twente. For the first time, this symposium will be organized in a hybrid manner due to COVID-19 restrictions for traveling. The program will consist of presentations sessions that will be physically held while also being broadcasted online for digital audiences. 


About the symposium

The title of this year's symposium is 'Towards Circular Regions'. Transdisciplinary knowledge has been emphasized to facilitate the transition from a linear to a circular economy (CE). Regional and broader scale initiatives are needed to manage multiple actors, sectors, scales and dimensions during the transitionary period. Systematic collaboration among societal representatives through their value chains can enhance regenerative production and consumption systems.

Regionally we pose a number of questions:

  1. how can government facilitate business transitions to offer products that have self- regenerative potential?
  2. how can business create business models that are profitable while ensuring resources management includes circularity principles, delivers products at reasonable cost, with high quality, and a self-regenerative sustainable-footprint?
  3. to what extent can education facilitate society to make purchasing decisions accordingly with responsible-regenerative consumption principles?
