Education

Living Circular
LivingCircular is an online resource designed by Veolia to provide inspiration and to share ideas on sustainable models for future growth. Today we face a different world than our parents and grandparents. Our world is challenged by resource shortages and the adverse effects of climate change. These new realities place stress on the traditional models of production and consumption. How we deal with these realities is in our hands. We can assume there is nothing to be done, or we can take a stand and pursue initiatives to build a better future, one that’s designed with these circumstances in mind.
