Roger Strand

Professor Roger Strand from the Centre for the Study of the Sciences and the Humanities (SVT) at the University of Bergen, explains how two different grand narratives of BIO (growth and scientific development) and GEO (limits of resources) influence the debate on circular economy and sustainability.

What is the Circular Economy all about? What is the similarity between the idea of the circular economy and the horror movie "The Human Centipede"? Why is the circular economy a good idea even if the economy cannot be circular? These and many other questions will be answered by this 52 minute lecture.
