THE 12 SOCIETAL THEMES WE HACK IN 2019

CIRCULAR
CONSUMPTION

Zero-waste Consumption

To create a truly circular economic system we have to rethink the retail & consumer goods sectors. What would a retailer that only uses reusable packaging look like? How would the returns systems and logistics be arranged? And how could the producers still brand their products? Come to Hack Belgium and create the answer yourself!
