On 15 and 16 April 2024, the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference is happening in Brussels, with a twist!

The seventh edition of the most awaited Circular Economy conference in Europe will join forces with the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF), and  bring policymakers, industry leaders, academics and activists from all corners of the world to Brussels to turn circular visions into actions.

The 2024 edition of the conference will propose an exciting programme looking at the progress achieved and the gaps that need to be closed for Europe’s transition to a Circular Economy, while showcasing the work of its frontrunners.

Online and on-site attendees can expect keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities to kick-start engaging discussions and inspire change. There will be a mix of policy-oriented sessions and stakeholders’ dialogues, to highlight the key role of a legislative framework for a Circular Economy that is designed for a swift and effective implementation, at the core of which are civil society organisations.

The conference offers a unique platform for fostering partnerships and forging collaborations among various sectors, reinforcing the Circular Economy as a driver of sustainable development.

The European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform (ECESP), powered by the European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee, will showcase and discuss Europe’s progress in the transition in dedicated EU-focused sessions.

On 17 April, the Belgian Presidency of the European Union will organise sessions and site visits to local circular businesses open to all. In addition, accelerator sessions will be held by WCEF collaborators on 17 and 18 April in Brussels, online and around the globe.
