The third international conference of the Global Research Forum on Sustainable Production and Consumption (GRF) will convene researchers, development practitioners, policy makers and representatives from business, government and civil society to explore critical links between the circular economy, sustainable lifestyles and livelihoods and the Sustainable Development Goals. We will examine the potential for, pathways to, and politics of advancing a global transition from the current linear “throw-away” model to sustainable production and consumption systems and practices in “circular economies.” Keeping with GRF’s emphasis on global perspectives, we will explore these questions across different regions and communities, in both industrialized and developing countries.
