CC conference 1500x430 

The international Circular Change Conference has become one of the key events in Europe dedicated to the topic of the circular economy. ACR+ member Wcycle Maribor hosted the fourth edition of Circular Change Conference, which tooke place on 16 and 17 May 2019 in Maribor, Slovenia
The ambition of this edition was to move towards less talk, more action. The organiser, ACR+ partner Circular Change invited participants to explore what is actually happening on the ground. There are excellent reports and data, as well as guidelines for much needed solutions to move from a linear to circular economy. Most of the world’s governments have agreed on the sustainable development approach, based on the SDGs, that takes the environmental, economic and social dimensions into account. The next step is to translate them into concrete actions, radical collaboration and scalable success stories.
On the first day, after the welcome address by the Mayor of Maribor Saša Arsenovič, the conference focused on four business cases from four priority sectors: food, manufacturing, mobility, and forest-based value chains, all the while referring back to the key role played by the creative industries. ACR+ intervened during a workshop addressing waste vs. resources. The second day was dedicated to both ideas and actions about circularity, followed by company visits and panel discussions.
