The conference opened with key speeches highlighting the need to change to a circular economy, the European legal context and the role of local and regional authorities. In the afternoon, panel discussions gave the opportunity to share expertise on the organic fraction and the construction and demolition sector.

Sustainable food for thought
One day before the conference, on 15 March, ACR+ organised "Sustainable food for thought" a meeting of the Circular Europe Network. This meeting - open to ACR+ members and selected circular economy platforms - focused on how the various national and regional platforms on circular economy can cooperate. It included a workshop enabling the participants to co-construct guidelines on sustainable food strategies within a circular economy perspective.
