19:45 – Cradle to Cradle: Leaving a big and positive footprint
The Cradle to Cradle School of Thought addresses todays and future problems with innovative solutions to use high quality and healthy materials for the production of all kinds of goods. Defined materials flow as nutrients in continuous biological and technical cycles. Let’s get rid of the concept of waste and leave a big and positive footprint within a Cradle to Cradle Economy!
About the speakers:
Nora Sophie Griefahn and Tim Janßen, co-founder and executive directors of the Cradle to Cradle Association Germany have been building up the organisations’ work since 2012 in the fields of education and networking. Together with 30 regional groups and more than 300 volunteers they aim to bring the C2C School of Thought in the midst of society.
20:15 – Green Alley: Rules will not lead us – it’s the vision that counts.
Take, make, consume, throw away – the linear economic model is obsolete. We need new solutions to close the loop and to eliminate the idea of waste. It’s a challenging task with ambitious targets. However, many good ideas are already in the pipeline and it’s a perfect starting base for entrepreneurs and start-ups to create alternatives. Get insights how green start-ups are already shaking up our „business-as-usual” behavior and get inspired to do so, too.
