Sitra at Slush Youth

How to change our mindset from buying goods to using services? Which arguments appeal to different types of consumers?

Sitra organises a workshop on the circular economy in Slush Youth event on 1 December. The goal of the workshop is to update our understanding of the global economy and adapt to the limits set by scarce resources and the carrying capacity of Earth. This transformation is taking us towards a circular economy where consumption is based on the use of services instead of owning things.

Why a circular economy?  By 2030, the added value from a circular economy could be at least 3 billion euros per yer – in Finland alone.
