CIRCUSOL: Solar power business models towards a circular economy in…
CIRCUSOL will participate in the 3rd Word Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) celebrated in Helsinki, Finland on the 3rd and 5th of June 2019. VITO, the coordinator, will co-organize a side event with several other RTOs on circular business models. Also, as well as last year, CIRCUSOL will be presented and they will share our main outcomes so far.
The World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) is a global initiative of the Finland and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra. The WCEF brings together more than 2,000 business leaders, policymakers and experts to present the world’s best circular economy solutions. The WCEF examines how businesses can seize new opportunities, gain a competitive advantage through circular economy solutions and how the circular economy contributes to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The first forum was organized in Helsinki, Finland in June 2017 with 1,600 participants from nearly 100 countries. In 2018, Sitra brought the concept to Yokohama, Japan where more than 1,100 circular economy experts discussed what we need to do to create a true circular economy by 2050.
The WCEF2019 will bring together around 2,000 key circular economy thinkers and doers from around the world. This year the forum will have a strong emphasis on the next era of the circular economy and scaling up the transition.
