World Circular Economy Forum 2023 Accelerator Session - Cities and regions accelerating the circular transition

The World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) is a landmark event of the year that brings together business leaders, policymakers and experts to present the world’s best circular economy solutions. Focusing on “Circular solutions for nature and the economy”, WCEF2023 will take place from 30 May to 2 June. It is an event co-hosted by Nordic Innovation and Sitra, with the support of international and European partners – including the European Commission.

On the main Forum days (30 and 31 May), the plenaries will explore cross-cutting themes for a diverse, global audience. They explain circularity’s role for the well-being of nature and the economy, youth’s role in the transition, circularity in financial markets, and future trends for a regenerative and resilient economy. On 1-2 June, 40 Accelerator Sessions organised by WCEF2023 Partners will occur. These sessions bridge the Forum’s themes with the daily work needed for a circular transition by focusing on the implementation of existing action agendas. They will be outcome-oriented and pose an opportunity for deeper audience engagement. Together with the European Investment Bank, the European Commission will host a hybrid Accelerator Session on “Cities and regions accelerating the circular transition” on 1 June, 9:00-10:30 CET. This side event will highlight the role of cities and regions in the transition to circular economy, as cradles, catalysts and circular change makers. It will feature cities and regions sharing inspirational examples and experiences. Programmes and projects that can help cities take circular action will also be presented – including the European Commission’s Circular Cities and Regions Initiative (CCRI) and the EIB’s Circular City Centre. In addition, the participants will have access to Networking and Expo areas throughout the Forum. A CCRI and Horizon-Europe stand will be exhibited from 30 to 31 May – join us there! To enable participation from around the world, the WCEF2023 will be live-streamed online, open to all and free of charge. In-person attendance to the main Forum sessions is by invitation only.
