TALK: How un-labeling can help to achieve a circular society

Who are we / Wer sind wir ?

Nora is the co-founder of the social upcycling business mimycri. At mimycri, refugees and Berliners design bags out of broken refugee rubber boats:

What will we do / Was werden wir machen ?

In a short talk I would like to share our experience about the power of “un-labeling” waste: the same material/product can be perceived as a burden and cost or as a valuable resource, depending on the perspective that you take. We believe that the reflection about our perception of waste is the starting point for a more circular economy and society. We want to share our experience with you and discuss options on all levels on how to use the power of un-labeling to achieve a more circular economy. We want you to leave with an open mind and a million new ideas.

Hi @Vera , here is Lars - one of the organisers of the event. Is there a way you present this as some kind of hands-on-session where you actually make bags on site? Or is that to complicated?

It will not be possible to do that, as it is too complicated to bring the sewing machine etc., but I could bring some boat material and some bags and explain how they are made.


Cool. That is good enough :slight_smile:
