Delano journalist Jess Bauldry was the guest on the seven-day roundup section of radio 100,7’s “Connecting” show hosted by Natasha Ehrmann on Friday. Here’s what they discussed.
Circular economy progress
Jess and Natasha reflected on Luxembourg’s third industrial revolution economic strategy set out by Jeremy Rifkin in 2016 prompted by this week’s announcement to hold a survey on projects that have been established in the four years since. The two discussed the landmark achievements, many of which are in Wiltz, and the product circularity datasheet (PCDS), promoting circularity in industry and manufacture, which was launched by Luxembourg earlier in the week.
The opening of the extension of Luxembourg’s tram network to the train station this weekend is a major landmark for the capital’s long-term transport strategy. While celebrations will be muted because of covid, there will be plenty of opportunities to test the 16-kilometre network while avoiding crowds as footfall in the capital has fallen dramatically. The national bus network will also be overhauled starting Sunday.
