Circle Economy and eBay launch circular economy crowdsourcing platform

Dutch social enterprise Circle Economy has teamed up with the eBay Foundation to launch a new online crowdsourcing platform to pull together new circular solutions to global challenges.

Launched today (19 March) in Glasgow, Circle Lab hopes to bring together an international community of circular economy experts, entrepreneurs, businesses, citizens, cities and governments to encourage circular ideas in response to global challenges. Through collaboration, Circle Lab wants to bring these ideas to fruition, furthering the transition to a circular economy in which value within an economic system is created again and again while respecting the planet’s ecological boundaries.

It is hoped through the harnessing of the power of the crowd in a collaborative environment and sharing expertise, circular solutions can be accelerated and the best will have access to support from local incubators to ensure they see the light of day.
