There really are so many opportunities in South Africa - thanks for a great overview, Linda. The question is: what are the barriers to unlocking the opportunities?

The best waste, is the waste that is NOT created. How much focus does the Circular Economy place on Waste prevention.
Lorraine Jenks
01:37:53
I agree, Charlaine. Sometimes the circularity guides seem to be protecting plastic and how to keep it in circulation - mopping up instead of switching off the tap.

I have started giving households orange bags to sort and separate their waste in our area we couldnt believe the waste we got from the pilot we have done there was no waste to be taken to landfill

The rental model makes a lot of sense especially for items which we dont need all the time, or only need from time to time, e.g. tools, baby clothes etc.
Maryna Mohr

Martijn sometimes when your using multiple screens it shows the wrong screen in present mode.
Perrine Herve-Gruyer
02:42:58
You can have a look at our website. We have a list of tools https://www.fermedubec.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/8/2017/11/Juin-2017-Les-outils-de-la-Ferme-du-Bec-Hellouin-.pdf But it does not include the land price which will depend according to the countries. In France, you could imagine that the land and tools would be 100 000 Euros (without housing).
Fluc Blakeway
02:47:46
Wow, this is brilliant, Martijn. The social impact is fantastic. Do we have something like this in Africa?
Evans Quaye
02:50:14

Deborah Ohui Nartey
02:55:45
Interesting to hear the work you're doing in the e-waste space in Ghana. Is there a way to connect with the team in Ghana?
Evans Quaye
02:55:48
Give second life to equipment and don't rush them to recycling.Refurbishment is the way to go.
Frédéric de Hemptinne

The content has been extremely rich - how do we get some of this content beyond research, development and innovation into the public space, so that people can take some of these ideas into their own spaces?
Alison Davison
02:59:11
Thank you Linda and the team :) - this refreshing approach and focus is needed in South Africa, as the default is still to revert back to the incorrect "mainly recycling" understanding of the Circular Economy - Will definitely share the presentations further!
