WCEF2024 accelerator session: Inspiring best practices from a circular hub in northern Netherlands

Brussels | 18th of April 2024 

This event is an accelerator session at the World Circular Economy Forum 2024. WCEF2024 will gather forward-looking thinkers and doers and present the game-changers in the circular economy. The Forum will be held from 15 to 18 April in Brussels, Belgium. WCEF2024 is organised by Sitra, the Finnish Innovation Fund, and produced with Circle Economy Foundation (programme partner) and the International Resource Pannel (science partner), in close collaboration with international partner organisations.

European collaboration for closed loops on plastics, textile, construction, and waste management

The North of the Netherlands, acting as a hub for circularity, is characterised by a practical approach and bottom-up collaboration in ecosystems. In this session, they share their approach, looking to build (circular) bridges transnationally and to give regions, local authorities, regional partnerships, and companies action perspectives for the transition to a circular economy.

Join us as we delve into the eco-system approach in plastics, textiles, construction, and waste management. Aiming to exchange valuable insights and find partners to close the loop with impactful European projects, this session will facilitate discussion with and connection to potential partners. By participating, businesses, organizations and regional government representatives are invited to explore tailored opportunities for cooperation within these four key sectors.

After the session, there will be the opportunity to mingle and chat with speakers and the audience.
