A Just Transition to a Circular Economy—Employment Trends and Visions for the Future

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 nature. To ensure a fair transition, it is important to assess and manage the impacts of the transition to a circular economy on the labour market.

(Open to public)

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

In the event we will discuss two key issues:  

  • The circular economy is necessary for a transition to a 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 webinar is an official WCEF online side event. The event is co-organised by Sitra, Circle Economy, and IISD.
