Many countries and regions are developing strategies and action plans to make their economies circular--moving away from the traditional linear extract, produce, consume, dispose model. They want to create economies where there is less reliance on non-renewable resources such as virgin minerals, fossil fuels, harmful emissions, and the like. The presentation by Alen Amirkhanian will show how this is supposed to happen and what it means for Armenia.

10 years ago in 2008 Rainer Nõlvak, an ordinary entrepreneur from Estonia, gathered four friends and suggested that they try to cleanup the whole country from illegal waste. The idea seemed insane, but 50,000 people came to the streets. The action grew into a large volunteer movement, which initially operated only in Estonia, but this year it is aimed to cleanup the entire Earth. 


This year on September 15, Armenia also joined the movement, and the presentation tells you just about that!
