In November 2018, Impact Hub, Move.bg and WWF jointly pioneered a virtual conference in Central and Eastern Europe. Over 150 people joined and gave great feedback: the 34 speakers were high-class, the variety of sessions was received enthusiastically, and many people even left with the idea of hosting a virtual conference themselves! Building on last year’s success, a new edition of the event will be hosted from 26 through 28 November 2019.
We’re facing massive environmental challenges around the world. Whereas unsustainable consumption and production create heaps of waste, the idea of a circular economy (CE) tries to break that cycle. CE opportunities around the world are on the rise – but the CEE region seems to be left behind. Collaboration across organisations, sectors and countries is necessary to create a positive narrative for the future. Together, we can reach SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production. Innovators, social entrepreneurs, thinkers, CE practitioners, students – everybody is invited to come and gain inspiration and exchange knowledge.
Get familiar with the basics and learn about local realities from experts in the field and region.
Take the challenge to apply the concept of CE in as many aspects of life together with other entrepreneurial minds.
Gain an understanding of why a circular economy is not per se sustainable, and learn how we can respect the planet while we establish a CE.
The conference is free, and accessible to anybody with an internet connection, anywhere in the world. Please register so that we can follow up with you.
