IIIEE taking part in the World Circular Economy Forum in Helsinki 3-5 June
Jessika Luth Richter, Julia Nussholz and Katherine Whalen will be representing IIIEE at the World Circular Economy Forum 2019 in Helsinki. Information about WCEF (from their website): The World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) is the global initiative of 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. We believe that truly competitive solutions are born when business and environment go hand in hand.
The first forum was organised 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.
