‘Circularity’ is the principle that each element on a chain serves as raw materials or input for the next. Circular-design uses this life principle to create product-systems that generate, preserve, and compound value, without creating waste or dead-ends. This principle of circularity can be seen most intensely in Earth’s Carbon Cycle.
To build a resilient, united, and sustainable global future, we, as the people of the world, have a solemn responsibility to understand each other through the products that give us meaning. By spending the time to understand why someone (other than us) lives the way they do, we will be less inclined to dismiss them, finding ways to value them instead. Leading by example, we can then help ascend all nations.
