New publication: Circular Economy and the social-ecological crisis

As part of the Publication Series Sustainability (Schriftenreihe Nachhaltigkeit) of the Hessische Landeszentrale für Politische Bildung, the volume “Kreislaufwirtschaft – ein Ausweg aus der sozial-ökologischen Krise” (Circular Economy – A Way Out of the Social-Ecological Crisis), written by OHA members Melanie Jaeger-Erben and Florian Hofmann, was published. With a critical perspective on current systems of consumption and production, the volume attempts to illuminate concepts of the circular economy with regard to their potential for social-ecological transformation. The one-sided focus on economy and technology is critically discussed and the future scenario of a Circular Society is outlined, including concepts of social sustainability and justice.
