On Wednesday 26 April at the 2023 European Geophysical Union (EGU) General Assembly, Dr. Jorge Gómez-Paredes (Visiting Professor at JLU and SDG Nexus Network) and Dr. Alex Godoy-Faúndez (Visiting Professor at Harvard University) chaired a session on the Circular Economy.

The session entitled Challenges of circularity: Considering the energy and material demands/benefits of a circular economy across global supply chains brought together 9 presentations about the global perspectives of the implementation of a circular economy, as well as examples of circularity in terms of construction materials, rare earths, e-waste and organic waste. This session also included 7 poster presentations in hall X4 and 3 virtual posters.

This was another contribution of the SDSN Andes to the strategies to achieve the SDGs.
