In this podcast Ken reflects on 2019, the end of the decade and looks forward to the new year, the decade of the 2020's.
He calls for this to be the "Year (and Decade) of the RE-'s":
RE-VOLUTION now, starting on January 1st 2020.
RE-DO everything for positive, beneficial outcomes.
RE-THINK – Rethink the linear business model
RE-DESIGN – Redesign for circular business models
RE-USE – Reuse materials at the end of use which RE-QUIRES new product designs and new reverse logistics systems capable of being implemented on a LOCAL level.
RE-NEW – Renew your personal commitment to reducing your negative footprint on the planet and to increase your positive footprint.
RE-GENERATE – Regenerate the earth, put Carbon where it is meant to be – in soil, in living matter as productive carbon.
RE-ENERGIZE – Reenergize your power needs with clean renewable energy.
RE-DUCE – Reduce, then eliminate the BAD or negative footprint of the linear economy and then go beyond setting “less bad” goals to setting goals with positive, beneficial outcomes.
RE-VALUE – Revalue people, places and culture – locally and globally.
RE-PAIR – Repair goods and provide services to keep products at a high quality, operating for extended periods of time.
RE-EDUCATE – Put sustainable, circular economy into schools and universities, not just in the curriculum but also into the administration, the very operation of the institutions so that students are immersed in and experience a sustainable circular economy in the very fabric of their university experience.
And as many more "RE-'s" as is needed to create the REVOLUTION that's needed.
