Successful launch of whitepaper “Repair in the Circular Economy”
We look back on a successful launch of the white paper “Repair in the Circular Economy”, which took place on 13 November. One hundred and twenty scientists, entrepreneurs, policymakers, administrators, students, and people from repair cafes joined the conversation.
During the event, IDE Professor of Design for Sustainable Consumer Behaviour Ruth Mugge presented the paper to Marieke Begthel-Spijkerboer from the Ministry Infrastructure and Water Management. Marieke closed the event with the encouraging words, “We are going to develop new standards so that products last longer and are easier to repair."
