16.00 - 19.00
We are facing massive environmental challenges around the world. Whereas unsustainable consumption and production create heaps of waste, the idea of a circular economy (CE) tries to break that cycle. CE opportunities around the world are on the rise – but the CEE region seems to be left behind. Collaboration across organisations, sectors and countries is necessary to create a positive narrative for the future. Together, we can reach SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production. Innovators, social entrepreneurs, thinkers, CE practitioners, students – everybody is invited to come and gain inspiration and exchange knowledge.
The programme will revolve around three themes:
November 28, 9.00 – 12.30 CET: Working within planetary boundaries. Gain an understanding of why a circular economy is not per se sustainable, and learn how we can respect the planet while we establish a CE.
