Every year this trend-setting event offers participants, speakers and sponsors the opportunity to connect, become engaged, inspired, and up-to-date with the newest developments in the global push towards circularity.

2020, the first year in new decade is crucial for the implementation of sustainable agendas and goals already agreed on the international level – our last chance to save our planet and our civilization. How do we act here and now?

The ambition of the 5th Circular Change Conference is to mainstream the circular economy mindset on all levels of decision making and acting. The program is spread over 5 different virtaul events, in a form of roadshow, in order to adapt to the new kind, as a cosequence of COVID-19-crisis. It is structured in a way to give a concrete insight into actions on three levels:

  • GLOBAL: challenges and actions addressing climate crisis and implementation of SDG’s;
    Interconnected and interdependent as we are, we need global governance to address climate crises and lead economic and societal transformation. Where does Europe stand today and what is the expected impact of the New Green Deal?
  • BUSINESS: personal responsibility and key turning points when leading the circular change; First hand stories of circular change-makers. Purpose driven businesses based on core values with positive economic, social and environmental impact. Co-creators of new economic paradigm shift.
  • CITIZENS: circular behaviour in everyday life – responsible production and consumption.
    Our wallet as an impactful voting power. “Buy or not to buy” – daily decisions count. Collaboration between producers and consumers for the preservation of our quality of life.
