About the event

The rest of the world has a lot to learn from Africa’s approach to circularity, not to teach it, or nor import ready-made solutions. African countries are both the source of many of the world's raw materials; from the rare earth metals in our smartphones to the food on our plates. They are also treated as a dumping ground for the world's waste products. African markets extend the useful life of products that have reached premature obsolescence elsewhere, but they also lock in inefficient consumption models by extending the lifespan of inherently unsustainable products.

In this session, they will share key learnings from a recently published report showcasing initiatives across the African continent. They will highlight a few business models and then breakout into groups to discuss how these lessons can be applied in different contexts

Panelists: - Deborah Ohui Nartey, Research Analyst, Footprints Africa - Joanna Bingham, CEO, Footprints Africa
