Millennium Fellowship Project: The Oblate Spheroid
The Oblate Spheroid is a sustainability-focused think tank and policy incubator that aims to study the political, economic and social implications of the circular economy model. It will have the aim of uncovering the benefits and drawbacks of change within local communities with the hope of educating citizens. The think tank will work on three different areas, finance, policy and innovation. The financial research will aim on ascertaining the financial benefits of a circular economy model through econometric analysis with a process similar to the one used when calculating GDP.
