”Through Crises Toward Transformation: Systemic Solutions - Transforming to a Circular Economy"
Join us on Sunday, June 13 2:00 pm-3:30 pm PDT (3pm MDT, 4pm CDT, 5pm EDT) via online.
In this session we start examining the pervasive structural issues that shape our world, in this case the basic economic model (Note: consumerism will be a separate session). Our current practice is a Create-Use-Discard economy that results in ravaged mountains, toxic tailing ponds, abusive child labour, abandoned oil wells, and mountains of trash. The old model generally considers resources to be endless, waste to be of no consequence, and the implications for Nature to be negligible.
Lugano Kapembwa will share an alternative model: The Circular Economy. From the ground up, once new resources enter this modular system, the model tracks resources and keeps re-using and replacing them as long as possible. In addition, Lugano will briefly share his insights from working on 100,000-person “city within a city,” where flexibility and change can occur more nimbly.
Lugano Kapembwa is co-founder and CEO of Loopcycle, a circular technology platform embedding lasting traceability that redefines how customers manage, recover and resell their used products. Prior to this role, Lugano worked on a $5 billion project, delivering sustainability and resource efficiency programs as Energy and Environment Lead for Canary Wharf Management, the landlord arm of Canary Wharf Group—owners of the 128 acre estate and mini-city district in London, UK. Lugano holds a M.Sc. in Law and Environmental Science and a B.Sc. in Environmental Science.
