Plastic & Circular Economy

Get your ticket now!

“Plastic does not belong to nature and we need a fundamental system change to address the problem. What we need is a circular economy.”
(Hans Reitz)

Plastic pollution has become one of the most urgent social and environmental problems of our generation. Approximately 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year and it is expected that in the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. A systemic change is needed. The question is how to start thinking circular and transform our linear industrial production lines in order to transform to a more circular economy? A chance for Social Business entrepreneurs to change the game and become the pioneers for circular solutions.


During the Global Social Business Summit 2018 different plastic recycling and waste management Social Businesses and approaches will be discussed in various workshops, presentations and expert dialogues. There will be an inspirational speech from Dave Hakkens, the founder of Precious Plastic – a community of over 40K people working towards a solution to plastic pollution. Moreover, a discussion panel will take place with Roshan Miranda (director of Waste Ventures India), the CRCLR House (a circular economy hub from Berlin), Mr. Ashraful Hassan, a social business expert from Bangladesh, the Grameen Creative Lab (GCL) and more.
