mentoring skills that count

Circular economy as an opportunity to address climate change

8 organisations, 16 practitioners of circular economy, low carbon and innovation, 

enabling the social and economic transition 

with training and mentoring for circular economy start-ups, 

skills development and sustainability strategy for public and business engagement. 

Working together towards a sustainable supply chain interdependency. 

Our Pathway

With the economy, society and the world at large becoming increasingly more complex, systems thinking is an integral part of an education fit for the 21st century. 

The development activity transforms into useful learning only when we integrate it with what we already know and do.... when we find a place for it to play out 

through our heads, hearts, and hands. 

Putting knowledge into practice: from knowing to growing:

our skill resources are designed to support startups, students, women and men returning to work, businesses and practitioners to explore and practice the key concepts and habits of mind underpinning systems thinking as it relates to a circular economy and low carbon innovation development. 

The global economy is losing more money from the disappearance of forests than through the current banking crisis, according to an EU-commissioned study. It puts the annual cost of forest loss at between £2.5 trillion and £5.6 trillion

We need to embrace restoration beyond the labels, with a scientific approach and see new evidence as it arises. 

We are beginners and pioneers in this. Ecological and economic restoration is based on young science that’s only been developed in the last 25 years. We need to adapt our management if it turns out that what we are doing is not the right thing.

Building a strong foundation for the circular economy, low carbon innovation and other sustainability frameworks require coordinated action.


Shifting to a circular economic model will affect 

all sectors and policy domains and it will require knowledge and new skills. 

Here are five priorities:

  1. ƒTo make this integrative learning approachable by developing countries and remote or isolated communities or individuals.
  2. To map, learn, research, identify, and evaluate, with metadata, sustainable innovation opportunities, moreover to find finances to discover what triggers these initiatives and enable cooperation across Scotland, UK, Europe and Worldwide
  3. To develop integrative approaches beyond the labels of sustainable frameworks - as circular economy itself, water stewardship, cradle to cradle, carbon accounting, the natural step, natural capital accounting, blue economy, social justice and more and more - It is time to re-affirm science as real overarching principle of sustainable development.
  4. Encourage and create systems to preserve the value of materials and initiatives at the national, regional and city levels to facilitate the development of profitable circular business opportunities at scale.
  5. Design a new governance system to steer the economy toward greater skill resource management, employment, and competitiveness.
