TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Miniwiz founder Arthur Huang (黃謙智) and international leaders rethink circular economy issues in a documentary called "Going Circular," which will make its debut on Saturday (Nov. 6).

Produced by the Oscar-winning team from "Off the Fence," ARTE, and ZDF Enterprises in association with the WaterBear Network, the documentary features four entrepreneurs, scientists, and writers. They look at the growing importance of the circular economy, which targets zero waste, and urge the world to take action.

The video hosts include the founder of Taiwan's Miniwiz, an innovative upcycling company, former Managing Director of JPMorgan John Fullerton, British independent scientist James Lovelock, and American biologist and science writer Janine Benyus.

In the two-minute trailer, Arthur Huang says the whole earth is actually one ecosystem. Everything is interrelated and balances itself out, but humanity is messing up the balance.

The Taiwanese business leader said he deeply believes the waste of one company can be the resources of another. He also emphasized that circularity is the only hope and the only way humans can continue to survive on Earth.

In the trailer, there is footage of trash floating over the ocean. The 102-year-old Lovelock noted that lots of things people throw away just do not belong in the trash or in the sea.

“Going Circular” can be watched on Curiosity Stream in the United States. It will premiere at the "Climate Hub: The Think Tank," held by The New York Times, at COP26 on Saturday.
