Slovenia is moving towards a Circular Economy - article from Circulate, Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Circular Economy in focus
Slovenia, an EU country with 2 million inhabitants and 60% of its land area covered by forests, is home to a considerable amount of pristine natural capital. Since the 1980s, national campaigns and key messages have focused on this potential, resulting in strong public awareness and engagement for a positive development model. The Circular Economy model seems to be the right answer for this small country tucked between Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary.

Some favourite insights in 2015 as an inspiration for those jet to come in 2016

My youngest doughter Tesa - my "alter ego"
2015 was full of coincidences that turned out be synhronicity. It was definitely an inspiring and powerful year. Full of joy but also marked with shadows. My beloved grand mother passed away and an unexpected emptiness has emerged. On the other side so many new projects and initiatives have been born and so many great people connected, that I hardly wait for everything what is jet to be created and realised.

Impressed by Luc de Brabandere - having a chance
to meet him as a co-organiser of the first regional
CEO BCG Dinner. Next to Melanie Seier Larsen (BCG).
