The transition to the Circular Economy needs collaboration. That’s why the first German festival on circular economy is an open social innovation event, calling on all relevant actors to join hands in accelerating the transition. For a societal endeavour of this scale, stakeholders from civil society, academia, policy, industry, and more need to be actively engaged. The first edition of the Circular Futures Festival wants to galvanize stakeholders and serve as a platform for open social innovation.
As part of our 15th year, we are deep diving into four key topics, including digitalisation, to explore how we can enable positive impact right now towards more sustainability and a good life for all. We were curious how our sustainable lifestyle (SL) team works on digitalisation at the intersection of behaviour change towards more sustainability. To find out, we interviewed Rosa Strube, Head of SL Team to discuss its potential. Read the full interview here.

How can we move from attitudes and intentions to action and generate behavioural change towards more sustainable food consumption in Europe? This report helps answer this question by making recommendations to various stakeholder groups on how to support sustainable consumption of food. It draws from research and insights of the latest and most compelling pieces of evidence, including those of behavioural science, aimed at supporting more sustainable and healthier diets in real-life contexts. The report is particularly targeted at policy makers at all levels (local, national, EU), civil society organisations (CSOs) and food industry and distribution actors, especially retailers and restaurants, that have a stake and are engaged in European food systems.
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.
