Intl. MSME Day 2024 Webinar

International MSME Day 2024


Embracing the Circular Economy with a Human-Centered Approach

Join us on June 27, 2024, for a pivotal webinar celebrating International MSME Day. This year’s theme, “MSMEs For a Sustainable Future – Embracing the Circular Economy with a Human-Centered Approach,” underscores the transformative role of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in advancing sustainable development.

The circular economy, a model replacing the traditional linear “take-make-waste” paradigm, emphasises continuous resource utilisation, waste elimination, and socio-economic development. Central to this model is a human-centered approach that places individuals and communities at the forefront of sustainable transformation. By considering people’s well-being and fostering inclusive participation, the circular economy aligns with local cultures and institutional needs, driving meaningful change.

MSMEs are uniquely positioned to lead this shift due to their agility and deep local knowledge. By adopting circular practices, MSMEs can innovate and create sustainable, profitable business models that cater to community needs and environmental goals. Their role in designing durable, reusable, and recyclable products underscores their potential to drive resilient and sustainable enterprises.

The webinar will highlight the essential support needed from governments, international organisations, and consumers to help MSMEs thrive in this new economic landscape. Discussions will focus on creating an enabling environment for MSMEs, improving access to finance, technology, and knowledge, and fostering policies that support innovation and growth.

As we approach the 2030 deadline for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it is crucial to accelerate progress by leveraging the potential of MSMEs. This webinar provides a platform for exchanging ideas and forging partnerships to advance the 2030 Agenda.

Join us to explore how MSMEs can lead the charge toward a sustainable and prosperous future. Together, we can shape a world that prioritizes both economic growth and environmental sustainability. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the change!
