Every year, the European circular economy community from businesses, public authorities, NGOs and civil society organisations gathers to discuss the transition to a circular economy. This is the flagship event of the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform, a joint initiative of the European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).
The first day of the conference, hosted by the European Commission, will tackle the new EU Circular Economy Action Plan and its implementation. The potential of the circular economy for a green recovery will also be covered in the sessions.
The second day, hosted by the EESC, will focus on stakeholder views in a series of online workshops highlighting successes and identifying new challenges. Eight workshops will cover circular themes ranging from construction to food waste to procurement and roadmapping.
Virginia Puzzolo, BBI JU Head of Programme, will participate in a side event on the circular economy.
