Enabling Citizen-Power into the Circular Textiles Sector – an interview with Lynn Foster

“The Amsterdam pilot team has given some thought to the question of narratives for citizens. One is to do a simple calculation of what CO2 was saved by a citizen donating used textiles into the circular economy, and display this to the citizen in the application, understanding that citizens do care. Another is the use of tokens as rewards for donations, understanding that material incentives can also be useful in raising consciousness,” says Lynn Foster about her collaborative teamwork with the City of Amsterdam as part of the DLT4EU programme.
