WCEF2024 programme overview launched

The 8th World Circular Economy Forum will hit Brussels from 15 to 18 April 2024 to turn circular visions into actions. What’s new this time?

WCEF2024 will feature the most impactful circular solutions from around the world, guided by the latest scientific evidence. The programme is designed to facilitate targeted discussions around governance, finance, people and employment, and business and innovation – the key enablers that drive the implementation of circular solutions on the ground.

A novelty for this edition are hands-on workshops and collaboration with two major players in Brussels: the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference who deliver a European track to the main event, and the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union who will curate a full day of accelerator sessions on 17 April, including site visits to circular economy companies in Belgium.

The forum will encourage Europe and leading countries around the world to continue accelerating towards circularity and raise ambition by putting nature and people at the heart of it. Advocating for a global just transition to a circular economy, this global collaboration platform facilitates a participatory spirit of playful discovery, genuine learning and cross-sectoral, geographically diverse coalition-building.

WCEF2024 is brought to you by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, Circle Economy Foundation and International Resource Panel, in close collaboration with international partners.
