From November 28 to December 9 2022 the international winter school ‘From Extracting to Intersecting‘ was held on the campus of OP Jindal Global University in Sonipat, India. The winter school was organized by the Centre for Sustainability (CFS) of the Jindal School of Government & Public Policy  in cooperation with Global Solutions Initiative and GIZ. The winter school was designed as an adjunct project to the ongoing Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues and as a preparatory event of the international Intersecting conference “Crisis and Transformation”, which will take place at the start of India’s G20 presidency in 2023.

At the winter school the young participants discussed how “Intersecting”, as a concept, could reverse material and cognitive extractive processes through a transition towards circularity powered by the tools of a creative economy and aiming at inclusive socio-ecological systems. Through fields trips they looked at ground-level projects and connected them with broader societal and global developmental issues. The best projects will be selected for a publication in the next Intersecting volume in 2023.
