Circular solutions for nature and the economy

The WCEF2023 main programme on 30–31 May will consist of 4 Plenary Sessions and 16 Parallel Sessions. 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.

The parallel sessions will bring the themes to life by sharing inspiring and scalable examples of the circular economy. These sessions will cover a variety of topics, such as: finance, accounting and metrics, everyday life and health, future skills, regenerative agriculture and forestry, finite materials and energy, mining, trade, strategies and road maps, fashion and textiles, food, construction and the built environment, plastics and packaging, electronics, and hydrogen.

In addition, the participants will have access to Networking and Expo areas as well as a mobile App throughout the Forum. The expo is a curated space for Forum attendees to engage with innovative and inspiring circular economy solutions demonstrated by leading organisations and businesses from around the world.

Accelerator Sessions organised by WCEF2023 Partners will occur on 1-2 June. 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.
