Event description

Description

Naomi Montenegro Navarro is a fellow Impact Hub member and a recent grad Environmental Sciences from Wageningen University in the Netherlands. Over the past year she has worked as a freelance researcher for the Radboud University Nijmegen on a variety of projects related to the circular economy – predominantly focussed at two topics: the transition to the circular economy in cities, and business models for the circular economy. One of the largest projects she has worked on is the book ‘Organising for the Circular Economy. A Workbook for Developing Circular Business Models’, which was published last May.

More about the Workbook on Circular Business Models

A Circular Business Model (CBM) shows how various parties close a cycle together with the aim of maximum value preservation. In the workbook a model is provided that reveals the seven separate building blocks of CBMs. Step-by-step the workbook introduces the reader to the building blocks by offering questions, the purpose being to assist the reader in the development of their own business model; a model that leads to a new value proposition or that shows how to alter a currently existing proposition. As a tool to support and inspire, thirty-one infographics are included that are based on the current situation of (Dutch) companies that are already incorporating circularity in their business operations to various extents.

More about the talk

On the 30th of August Naomi will be hosting a lunch meet-up (bring/buy your own lunch) during which she will discuss the model presented in the book. She will briefly introduce the Circular Economy and the implications of incorporating circularity for organisations, followed by a step-by-step introduction to the various building blocks of Circular Business Models, complemented with examples from the infographics. After the talk you will have gained a first insight in the some of the key elements to consider when moving towards a circular organisation.

This talk is for any company or organisation interested taking their first steps towards circularity, and of course for everyone that is interested in the circular economy in general.

If you would like to take a look before the meet-up, or if you are simply interested in reading the workbook, you can download the book and infographics here. Both can be downloaded for free:
