The World Circular Economy Forum 2021 (WCEF2021) will be hosted online from Canada, September 13 to 15, 2021.
The annual World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) presents the world’s leading circular economy solutions with business leaders, policymakers and experts participating from around the world.
Circular economy approaches can help businesses seize new opportunities and gain a competitive advantage, as well as contribute to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Building on previous forums, WCEF2021 will focus on the system level changes, or “game changers”, needed to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. Seizing the circular opportunity requires transformational change and collective efforts by businesses, policymakers, civil society and others.
Hosted in North America for the first time, WCEF2021 will bring dynamic new voices to the global discussion, explore circular opportunities from the perspective of natural resource producing countries, and highlight the critical importance of the circular economy to fight climate change and to protect biodiversity.
WCEF2021 will offer three days packed with information, ideas and examples of the circular economy. On September 13 and September 14, join us for Game Changer Sessions and short Demonstration Sessions.
- Game Changer Sessions will explore crosscutting themes to answer a common question: “What transformational steps can we take in the next five years to catalyze the systemic changes required to scale up a global circular economy that is prosperous, inclusive and equitable?”
- Demonstration Sessions will bring the themes of the Game Changer Sessions to life through concrete and inspiring examples of the circular economy “in action”. Demonstration Sessions will showcase proven, replicable, and scalable solutions and new business and policy innovations.
On September 15, partner organizations will lead Accelerator Sessions, outcome-oriented events that will bridge WCEF2021 with the daily work needed for a circular transition.
