  • Initiatives like this are crucial in educating the next generation of policy makers, entrepreneurs and customers. The circular economy model should be integrated into the high school curriculum and be a mandatory lesson for all children. There are too many bright young people with entrepreneurial spirits and business ideas that do not consider a CE model because they were never exposed to it. Education is crucial. With more education, integrating CE into business ideas and looking for sustainable purchases will become second nature.
