Our planet is an inflection point today. Hardly a day goes by without a warning being sounded on the perilous nature of our economic activities and its consequences on climate change, weather disruption and public health crises like COVID-19. Our linear, take-make-waste platform, which may have been practical when resource scarcity was a distant concern, requires a paradigm shift. Given that there are no good choices in a bad system, the transition from an economic system based on unlimited growth to one that is both ecologically and socially just must happen now. The answer lies in reinventing our economic system to arrive at an inclusive Circular Economy.
To address this crisis of perception, PYXERA Global is launching the inaugural edition of its India Circularity Summit. The objective of this summit is to initiate a dialogue to make circular economics mainstream and to arrive at actionable takeaways for all stakeholders across the spectrum, such as businesses, consumers, social sector organizations, start-ups, social enterprises, government, and academia.
Day-2 of the summit will have two sessions. The first will be a breakout discussion that will allow participants to get into discussion mode and achieve alignment leveraging summary findings of Day 1. The next session will feature Vineet Rai, Founder of Aavishkaar Group deliver a keynote address which will be followed by a panel discussion on “Call to Action.” Panel speakers include Ajay Govale, VP Sustainability, United Way Mumbai, Dr Sarika Kulkarni, Founder & Trustee, Raah Foundation and Venkat Kotamaraju, Director, Circular Apparel Innovation Factory, Intellicap. The panel will be moderated by Yash Ranga, Director, Innovation & Strategy, PYXERA Global.
