Circular Wonderings is an exploration of the role of digital, software and technology in the Circular Economy. Exploration is the key word here.

Its all local

The key to a successful circular economy is local. I still have a question about how we go from local to global change - given the reality of human society.

However, there are so many amazing examples of people starting local. This weekend I discovered another one close to me: Bluebird Exchange

"We are reducing the environmental impact of our outdoor adventures by re-using, repairing and sharing the outdoor gear that already exists in our local communities." [1]

I really admire initiatives like this. It both inspires and encourages me.

However, part of me also asks: what is the role of the software engineer when the key is for people to simply to work together in the physical world?
