WCEF2022 summary report
In 2022, the World Circular Economy Forum turned to the south for the first time since its origin in Finland in 2017. Hosted in Kigali, Rwanda – the green heart of the continent – WCEF2022 gathered 4,167 participants from 149 countries to chew over the main target: how Africa can contribute to a global circular economy.
The versatile audience gathered in several locations around Africa and the globe to make plans together. Based upon the events of the Forum and the views of the participants, we collected ideas on how to supercharge the circular economy at regional, national and universal levels. The participants’ intention is that the impact of the Forum will go beyond the three-day assembly and leave its mark on the African continent and the globe with newfound inspiration, inclusivity, determination and results.
