Building Back Better means Circular

12 May 2022 | 16:30 - 17:30 CEST
Online/offline hybrid regional and country events

The Building Back Better Means Circular aims to promote the understanding of the circular economy as a means for social businesses to have a sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and acceleration towards the path to attaining SDGs. During the session we will share knowledge about the circular economy and social business principles, and the role they play in the Build Back Better (BBB) program recently launched by the Yunus Environment Hub to support 25 Social Businesses in Kenya. We will be joined by 2 Female Founders from the BBB who will share the social problems they are tackling through their businesses, and real examples of how they harness the circular economy to drive impact. By the end of the session, we hope participants have gained a better understanding of how businesses can transition to more economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable growth. We will invite the audience to collaborate with BBB as experts, investors and potential program participants for future cohorts.
