Sprout-outs from Brussels

We’re happy to announce that WCEF2024 has joint forces with the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference 2024 (ECESC) which brought to the forum a dedicated track showcasing Europe’s progress. In addition, the forum featured a full day programme on 17 April curated by the Belgian EU presidency team including site visits to circular economy companies in Belgium.

Online for all creatures great and small

WCEF2024 marked the eighth iteration of the forum and occurred at a pivotal moment for economies, societies and our planet. To enable participation from around the world, the forum was live-streamed online, open to all and free of charge. Attendance in person was by invitation only.
