28th nov – 1st dec

FESTIVAL PROGRAMME.

The world’s resources are limited. But our resourcefulness isn’t. Together, we’re transforming the way we use those resources. Bringing circularity to life.

We’re the pioneers, the movers and shakers, the game changers and trailblazers, the dreamers and the doers. And we’re coming together for the must-attend virtual event of the year, The Festival of Circular Economy.

time-for-a-rethink

Amazing people achieving amazing things. Sharing, networking, bonding, challenging, collaborating, co-ordinating. Most of all, doing. Creating change. Making it happen. Translating theory into positive, practical action.

Celebrating our successes, learning from our mistakes, taking the circular revolution forward and accelerating the move towards sustainability and net zero. Our agenda covers all aspects of a circular economy, providing a forum for all.

From start-ups and scale-ups to multi-nationals, from government to academia – together we are inspiring, informing and reshaping the worlds’ economies.
