New manuscript on "Circular Economy for Beginners" seeking a wide audience

Geneva, 12th July 2018

A few days ago, Walter Stahel finished a short manuscript of 40 pages on Circular Economy for Beginners, which will be published in English end of September 2018 by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. It defines his position of what the Circular Economy is, and what it is not. Stahel’s intention is to give it a wide audience, not only to experts who speak English. He therefore encourages translation and publication of the manuscript as e-book in other languages through “ethical franchising”, a process used by Fritz Schumacher.
