The transition to a circular economy encompasses a total systemic change for which cross-sectoral collaborations are needed.
Formal public-private partnership
The transition to circular economy is not only an environmental imperative but also an economic opportunity. And it is not only a matter of public policy, but also involves private sector efforts. For this reason all relevant sectoral federations, research institutes, the largest environmental NGO and the federation of local authorities participate in the Circular Flanders joint venture. The steering committee of the partnership thus reflects the ‘social pentagon’ of government, industry & business, local & social profit, knowledge institutions, and the financial world.
Each partner pools human and financial resources with the partnership and takes on operational responsibility for one or more strategic work agendas.
The Circular Flanders Open Call provides financial support to organisations, to enable them to experiment with circular business and consumption models while providing an opportunity to learn about the barriers and drivers experienced in the process.
Bootcamps and eco-design challenges offer programmes in which young students, entrepreneurs and (young) professionals work together to design specific solutions to socially relevant issues in the field of circular economy. Taught by experts, the students acquire technical expertise in ecodesign, circular business models, process and project management. They also gain knowledge about systems thinking, vision, creativity, multidisciplinary work, etc.
The CE Centre develops the circular economy monitoring system for Flanders. At the end of 2018, the Centre delivered a conceptual basis for the CE monitor. The system consists of a top layer of macro-indicators, which give a general picture of the progress towards a circular economy in Flanders.
Beneath this macro level are four demand systems - housing, food and water, consumer goods and mobility. These systems are equipped with indicators that offer more detail and insight at meso level.
