Event: Empowering local action - a place-based approach to circular transformation

28 Feb 24

Join us for a hands-on WCEF2024 accelerator session focusing on empowering local communities to drive circular transformation.

Date: Wed, 17 Apr 2024 

Time: 16:00 - 18:00 CEST 

Location:Musée Art & Histoire - Salle Du Conseil, Parc du Cinquantenaire, 10 - 1000 Bruxelles

Type: In-person event 

Discover the pivotal role of cities, regions, and local communities in translating national circular economy ambitions into tangible action. Join us as we unveil our place-based framework - a blueprint for local actors initiating their circular journey.

Despite innovation and creativity in this domain, structural challenges persist - financial constraints, lack of enabling policy, capacity and technical knowledge gaps, lack of citizen engagement and siloed governance structures can often hinder the full potential of local ambitions. 

In this interactive workshop, gain insights and best practice from global pioneers driving circularity from the grassroots. Engage in dynamic roundtable discussions as we leverage the collective expertise of the forum community to co-create transferable solutions. 

Your participation matters. Join us in shaping a future where local actors are empowered to drive circular transformation from the bottom-up.
