Worldwide, only 10% of all mobile phone users give back their old mobile phones, while 90% store immense treasures of resources in their drawers at home*. In a European context, the Commission’s Circular Electronics Initiative counts on consumers to bring unused small electronic devices back to the resource cycle. But, how can consumers be supported in closing the loop and who needs which skills for that? At the #EUCircularTalk The Circular Electronics Initiative: Insights on Skills, the CSCP brings together experts and stakeholders to discuss these questions and share ideas on next steps.
The transition to a circular economy is a systemic shift towards conducting economic activity in ways that lead to growth, resilience, and social equity while at the same using resources in new and innovative ways to close the loop.
A circular economy is functional only insofar as it works for everyone – in line with the German Circularity Act, the European Circular Economy Action Plan part of the EU Green Deal, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The PathoCERT stakeholder mapping and baseline assessment report provides an analytical description of the emergency management system in five European countries/regions (Granada, Spain; Amsterdam, the Netherlands; Limassol, Cyprus; Thessaloniki, Greece and Sofia, Bulgaria) and South Korea. The report analyses and explores the existing operational procedures, frameworks and resources within each country as well as the stakeholders operating within. Seeking to lay down the foundations for a multi-stakeholder, participatory and systemic approach to developing solutions, the report also identifies and puts forward opportunities and recommendations for action that could further improve and make the respective emergency management systems more effective and resilient. To explore the different emergency management systems assessed in more detail please take a look at the full report.
Call for Collaboration
The most vulnerable, and therefore the hardest hit by the Corona pandemic are developing countries. There, due to high levels of informality, lack of infrastructure, and poorer living conditions, the effects of the pandemic are felt way more severely. We must, therefore, enhance our international collaboration to support these countries not only in overcoming the present crisis, but also in strengthening their resilience for the future.
If you are interested in collaborating with the CSCP, the Co-Working Space might be the right starting place for you. We are happy to share our Co-Working Space with you again as of 2022. To find out more, please contact Ramon Külpmann.
