    Resources: Why Romania is not ready for circular economy.
    Business models design for open source initiatives: While the answer to the question “How to make money with Open Source” is boring, the answer to the question “How to set up a business with Open Source” is interesting and not obvious to a lot of people in our current economy.

Guests: What they intend to talk about ->> IN ROMANIAN: Despre ce dorim sa vorbim:

  • Dezvoltarea unei piețe pentru economia circulară folosind principiile din economia socială (Ionut)

  • instalatii care te ajuta sa consumi mai putina apa, au pus amprenta de carbon din timpul folositii pe eticheta produselor astefel incat consumatorii responsabili sa faca alegerea si in fucntie de asta (Andrei)

  • as vrea sa abordez tema economiei circulare din prisma experientei personale de aproape 6 ani de cand lucrez cu lemn recuperat (din demolari, paleti, tamburi, copaci cazuti la furtuna, mobilier vechi defect); atat despre problemele si dificultatile cat si despre avantajele convertirii deseurilor lemnoase in lucrari de arta, pereti decorativi, mic mobilier;
    si nu in ultimul rand despre rezultate si satisfactii personale in acest gen de activitate (Daniel)

  • Eu am sa vorbesc despre economia circulara ca parte din paradigma sustenabilitatii, asa cum o vede si o pune in practica IKEA. Vom porni de la design, materii prime si energie, lant de productie, logistica, vinzare, servicii post vinzare, si vom ajunge pina la inchiderea cercului. Despre ce s-a realizat deja si despre provocarile pe care le avem inainte. „Economia circulara ca parte din paradigma sustenabilitatii. Viziunea si experienta IKEA” (Mircea)

  • Istoria Atelierului de panza si principiile de sustenabilitate abordate, cu provocarile intampinate in confruntarea cu realitatea. Mi-ar placea sa discutam despre aspectele care incurajeaza sau blocheaza persoanele de decizie din companii sa integreze principii de sustenabilitate in business-ul pe care il administreaza (cu accent bineinteles pe economia circulara) (Teia)

  • Eu vreau sa abordez tema Loving the deadlines>reality pressures into getting things done
    Voi povesti cum s-a nascut proiectul nostru Lampa Blank pentru ca trebuia sa participam la un targ si sa oferim o experienta de making și de asemenea despre proiectul Pedala electrica, realizat de Clubul de electronica Laborazon pentru zona eco a Festivalului Electric Castle. Si putem aduna tips de la oameni cum fac ei sa isi depaseasca procrastinarea (Alina)

  • cum putem accelera trecerea la o economie circulara, cu emisii reduse de gaze cu efect de sera? Trebuie sa ne axam pe lobby si advocacy sau sa formam masa critica de oameni – in special tineri – care sa faca aceeasta trecere, odata deveniti adulti? Daca acceptam scenariul doi (sa ne axam pe educarea tinerilor), mai avem suficient timp pentru asta? (suntem preocupati de ceea ce se se cheama „tipping points”, cauzate de schimbarea climei). (Felicia si Marius)
