Circular Economy Hub has been holding a monthly series called “Circular X” since April 27th, 2021. The series is an online study program where participants can learn about the future image of the circular economy, which is spreading through various industries and areas.
10th session topic: “Circular economy and human resources”
The topic for this session was “Circular economy and human resources.” The circular economy does not just contribute to decoupling environmental burdens and economic growth. It is also getting attention from the viewpoint of human resources. The shift to new economic models is expected to create new jobs. However, there is also a possibility of unemployment in certain industries. How to realize the circular economy in an inclusive way is also an issue for discussion. In addition, for realizing the circular economy, it is essential for people across industries and positions to cooperate. The promotion of the circular economy creates links between different industries and fields, and it is expected that connections between people, as well as connections between regions, will be rebuilt.
