This book draws on insights that originated from the Circular Economy and Zero Waste initiatives. Together these approaches try to boost the shift from ´´waste´´ to ´´resources´´ management. The content of this book is partially organized from a stakeholder perspective, revealing the managerial implications for public and private actors. Next to public policies, also illustrations come from the private sector. Petstar, Texperium and Walmart generously shared some of their best practices at in this regard. Cases from China, Indonesia, Mexico, the Netherlands and Romania are discussed in this book. In all of these different contexts they show ways to create collaborative schemes in order to ´´retain´´ the resources´ values as much as product quality and financial circumstances permit. The reader can thus take advantage of the pragmatic viewpoints that aim to inspire policy makers, researchers, students, organisations and communities to boost the needed changes towards a Zero Waste Economy.

El primer audio libro seleccionado por Mark Zuckerberg para su club de lectura en Facebook. El poder está cambiando de manos: de grandes ejércitos disciplinados a caóticas bandas de insurgentes; de gigantescas corporaciones a ágiles emprendedores; de los palacios presidenciales a las plazas públicas. Pero también está cambiando en sí mismo: cada vez es más difícil de ejercer y más fácil de perder. El resultado, como afirma el prestigioso analista internacional Moisés Naím, es que los líderes actuales tienen menos poder que sus antecesores, y que el potencial para que ocurran cambios repentinos y radicales sea mayor que nunca. En El fin del poder, Naím describe la lucha entre los grandes actores antes dominantes y los nuevos micro-poderes que ahora les desafían en todos los ámbitos de la actividad humana. La energía iconoclasta de los micro-poderes puede derrocar dictadores, acabar con los monopolios, y abrir nuevas e increíbles oportunidades, pero también puede conducir al caos y a la parálisis.

The novel Carlos Ruiz Zafón wrote just before The Shadow of the Wind. ´Fifteen years on, the remembrance of that day has returned to me. I have seen that boy wandering through the mist of the railway station, and the name of Marina has flared up again like a fresh wound. We all have a secret buried under lock and key in the attic of our soul. This is mine...´ In May 1980, 15-year-old Oscar Drai suddenly vanishes from his boarding school in the old quarter of Barcelona. For seven days and nights no one knows his whereabouts... His story begins in the heart of old Barcelona, when he meets Marina and her father German Blau, a portrait painter. Marina takes Oscar to a cemetery to watch a macabre ritual that occurs on the fourth Sunday of each month. At 10 a.m. precisely a coach pulled by black horses appears. From it descends a woman dressed in black, her face shrouded, wearing gloves, holding a single rose. She walks over to a gravestone that bears no name, only the mysterious emblem of a black butterfly with open wings. When Oscar and Marina decide to follow her they begin a journey that will take them to the heights of a forgotten, post-war Barcelona, a world of aristocrats and actresses, inventors and tycoons; and a dark secret that lies waiting in the mysterious labyrinth beneath the city streets.
