This report was produced by the independent, tripartite, Working Group on Resilience Management and the Circular Economy working under the aegis of the High Level Group on Innovation Policy Management. Its members – senior civil servants drawn from the European and national administrations, experts and managers from leading innovative companies and prominent scholars from academia – have participated in its work in their personal capacity.
Europe needs to take the global leadership of a new model of economic development to provide well-being to its citizens, focused on the twin objectives of equity and full sustainability. Therefore, applying resilience thinking as a transitioning model towards an economy built on circularity would have a positive and overarching impact on social, cultural, economic and environmental sustainability. Resilience thinking acknowledges that human activities now shape the biosphere from local to global scales. At the same time, human societies are fundamentally depending on the life -supporting biosphere for survival and well-being.
