Abstract

Modern Society shows a very strong need to look for a “dynamic equilibrium between local capital and the demand for well-being”. This transition towards sustainability requires the beginning of a process that is able to satisfy, in every economic cycle, the demand for well-being and the replicability of the “four stocks of capital”. The paper shows how the implementation of what Pearce and Turner called a “Circular Economic System” can make this possible, and highlights how new strategies for the adoption of a “Circular Economic Model” represent the condition for the circularity of development models. Moreover, the paper discusses how, given a radical change of strategy on a global and local level, the implementation of a circular process in rural areas can create individual and collective well-being and, at the same time, allows those areas to offer an important contribution to the transition.
