What is CONSCIOUS? Promoting Circular Economy Thinking through Incubators
The world needs more climate-conscious businesses to reduce thearbitrary use of natural resources, reduce waste and optimizeprocesses. In Nigeria, the concept of the circular economy is currentlypredominantly connected to recycling single-use plastics. However,
only 10% of used plastics get recycled globally, as such, this “postproblem” solution is not very effective.
We are creating a “pre-problem” solution: to imbibe circular economyplanning in Nigerian startups from ideation stage through incubator
programs. This training, called Conscious, would have two tracks –
Enabling Conscious; a Train-the-Trainer module for Hubs andEnterprise Support Organisations and Creating Conscious; for startups.
