The environmental movement is evolving beyond recycling to a more holistic paradigm: the “circular economy.” Using several colorful case studies from around the world, Economist Films offers an overview of the next phase of conservation. The film outlines the approach’s shortcomings, yet it manages to identify a patch of blue sky on an otherwise smoggy horizon. getAbstract recommends this hopeful video to business leaders wishing to learn more about sustainable practices and anyone interested in the evolution of environmentalism.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the environmental movement is evolving,
- How various communities are contributing to the “circular economy” and
- What challenges the circular economy faces.
