WATCH ON DEMAND


// 3rd online debate - Trailer


// our mission

Circle the Med Forum represents a pathway to sustainability. It follows a new development model that decouples growth from resource constraints. We are promoting new production-consumption models and business initiatives in a “circular way”.

// the pillars

// the forum

A prosperous and peaceful Mediterranean region in which people enjoy a high quality of life and where sustainable development takes place within the carrying capacity of healthy ecosystems by sharing common economic and environmental policy frameworks.

Circle the Med is about rethinking. Is about how we use our raw materials and resources to create a sustainable economy free of waste and emissions. Is about shifting from the current linear model of “take, make, waste” to an economy where we “reduce, reuse, recycle”. Is about cultural differences as well as similarities. Is about sustainable growth. Is about preservation of resources and our way of life by making it sustainable, or technically viable indefinitely.

Circle the Med represents a community promoting the “Med circular way” of thinking.
