SWITCH:COLAB – Consultative forum on circular economy solutions for industries

What are some of the most important lessons learned from global circular economy projects? Come and discover innovative and scalable examples of applied circular economy conversions in industries, implemented in UNIDO-led projects across Africa and Asia. 

Time: Thursday 1 June at 09:00–10:45 EEST (UTC+3) 
Place: Messukeskus expo, meeting room 103, Messuaukio 1, Helsinki

To drive the transition towards a circular economy, the value chains of key sectors such as plastic packaging, textiles, ICT and electronics must be transformed. The first edition of SWITCH:COLAB will examine innovative and scalable circular economy examples implemented under two EU-funded flagships projects.  

Join us for a fireside chat to explore important milestones, resources and lessons learned from these projects and get ready to put your knowledge to the test with the interactive “Circularity Game”. Developed by Circle Economy under the SWITCH2CE project, this assessment tool is an engaging way to learn more about circular economy practices and see how they can be applied in real-life situations.  

Join us in person and connect with policy makers, business leaders, practitioners and the public who share the vision for more circular and sustainable industries. 

Organisers: Unido’s SwitchMED and Switch2CE projects, in collaboration with Circle Economy and Chatham House, with financial support from the European Union and the Government of Finland
