Circular Economy Hub (below, CEHub), which is a specialized platform run by Harch about the circular economy, has started a podcast called “Circular Dialogue.”
“Circular Dialogue” plans to deliver information on the circular economy from various perspectives through dialogues and guest interviews by CEHub editors. In addition to dialogues that will deepen understanding of domestic and international topics, a wide range of themes will be covered, from specialized topics to casual talks. These include listening to observations and opinions from experts and researchers, as well as introducing efforts from practitioners.
As the circular economy has gained more attention recently in Japan and overseas, needs for information are becoming more varied. In order to deliver information to a much wider range of people, we will take advantage of the features of recorded voice media and share information with a different approach from articles.
How to listen to Circular Dialogue
You can enjoy the podcast through this broadcast page. We plan on uploading a new episode on the 2nd Friday of every month. (Because this December was the first month, we uploaded 3 episodes).
