Mauritius is facing a rise in energy usage and waste generation. Last year’s Wakashio oil spill is one such example. Fast fashion is also a growing concern for its local textile industry. It is negatively influencing the country's economy and tourism.
A university professor Mahendra Gooroochurn, at the University of Mauritius in Reduit, expresses his concern that they should approach a circular economy rather than a linear one and also think about the environment. New natural systems should be regenerated from the waste of one system. He is developing prototypes of green buildings that require minimal maintenance even in high-rainfall Mauritius, and which allow for better airflow for cooling on sweltering days.
Mahendra is very passionate about the concept and is hosting workshops with people from all walks of life and working across multiple industries.
He stresses the significance of helping and sustaining each other. Mahindra says with circularity and concerted actions people will collectively develop new value chains and Mauritius will be equipped with powerful levers to bring about the desired transformation in all sectors.
