The COVID 19 pandemic has radically changed our world, our perspective and our relationships – to each other and to nature. We have come to understand how nested our lives are in a network of personal, institutional and natural relationships. We have the opportunity as we create a recovery to focus on those things that matter. How create a low carbon future? How to create sources of income and revenues for all families and communities? Enabling a transition to the circular economy is crucial. New opportunities for restoring nature, creating new jobs and incomes that will benefit society. This better world can be created by designing out waste and pollution in the first place, keeping products and materials in continual cycles of use and reuse, and regenerating natural systems through the applications of organic waste. Instead of returning to the past, we turn our head, minds and hands to building a new future.
