Circular Europe Days: Showcasing Europe's excellence in the circular economy
The European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform’s Coordination Group members will showcase the work done by their Leadership Groups on 17th and 18th of January 2022 during the Circular Europe Days in Dubai. The event is an opportunity to showcase what Europe has to offer in the field of the circular economy and create an international space for front-running EU circular entrepreneurs,
On Monday January 17th the Circular Europe Days kicks off with two sessions organized by Holland Circular Hotspot in the Netherlands pavilion at the Dubai Expo.
The first session “The power of European Circular Networks” highlights the necessity of collaboration for circular transformation. Systems thinking and co-creation are key concepts the EU is committed to. Co-chairs Circular Change and Holland Circular Hotspot will guide participants through the role of network governance and circular hubs in the EU’s circular transition. Panelists will explore the impact of these hubs on the ground, presenting cases and sharing experiences. With keynote by Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans and welcome by the EU Ambassador to UAE Andrea Matteo Fontana.
The second session “Circular Opportunities in Building and Infrastructure” will bring together experts to discuss circular solutions in this sector that can inspire the world and create opportunities for EU frontrunners. Buildings and infrastructure account for 50% of extracted resources and 40% of carbon emissions. The good news: circular European solutions exist across the entire value chain and they can significantly contribute to a climate-neutral future.
