The Circular Economy focuses on the reuse of materials, where waste is seen as raw material. According to the United Nations, “large social gains can be realized from improving resource circularity in multiple sectors”.
The VUB Chair of Social Entrepreneurship, together with its partners, wanted to stimulate the creativity of students, entrepreneurs and employees to develop innovative solutions for the circular economy. Working together, they can let their passion take shake within several domains of the Circular Economy.
