Register for the online seminar on Thursday October 8, 2020
LET 'S TALK ABOUT REUSE - Results from the first reuse mapping study in Flanders
Although we consider reuse to be an important circular strategy, in reality we know very little about the size and the impact of reuse in Flanders. For this reason we will present the results of our research into total reuse in Flanders encompassing all product flows at our autumn seminar.
This new measure can serve as a new indicator for Flemish reuse. Moreover we treat one particular flow, textiles, more in detail.
On this occasion we also want to facilitate the debate on reuse: what is the environmental impact and what are the socio-economic opportunities, also considering a post-Corona relaunch? We will for instance also take a look at the opportunities for employment.
