  • December 14, 2020 at 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
  • Online

The event takes place at 3-4.30 pm UTC+2 / 2-3.30 pm CET.

A shift to a circular economy will change job markets considerably: some jobs will disappear, new jobs will emerge and many jobs will change in natureTo ensure a fair transition, it is important to assess and manage the impacts of the transition to a circular economy on the labour market. 

This event focuses on the skills and employment in circular economy.  

You will hear insights from three recent studies on the topic followed by a panel discussion with leading experts. 

In the event we will discuss two key issues: 

  • The circular economy is necessary for a transition to sustainable future. But can it bring about well-being, equality and other social benefits too? 
  • How do resource efficiency, product life extension, sharing platforms and other new circular economy business models affect employment and what new skills will be required?

The event is co-organised by Sitra, Circle Economy and IISD.

The event is an official WCEFonline Side Event and will be moderated by Malena Sell-Myllyoja, Senior specialist, Circular Economy, Sitra.
