Ensuring a peaceful transition

There are both tensions and opportunities for peace and resilience in the transition to circular economies. Shifting to less extractive and less inter-dependent economic systems introduces geopolitical transition risks over the next 15 years. Simultaneously, circular economic design can be compatible with peacebuilding initiatives aiming for community resilience, socio-economic fabric reconstruction and dialogue support at micro-levels. What are the risks and opportunities that circular economic designers need to be aware of to navigate tensions?
