Event description:

What is the circular economy's impact on our labour markets? Are we ready for this revolution in Europe? Does the private sector have the resources and ambition to make the jump to the circular economy? How do we get clusters and symbiosis between industries progressing where wastes and resources become synonymous between different sectors? What tools and funds are available to drive this long term policy agenda?

Implementation of the European Commission's circular economy action plan has implications for job creation, new skills, using raw materials and resources more efficiently, preventing waste, and much more.

As a partner event to Green Week 2016, this conference organised in partnership with the European Network of Environmental Professionals offers a valuable opportunity to learn about the emerging challenges for the circular economy and to engage in the discussion on making the necessary changes for investing in a greener future.

Confirmed speakers:

Pierre Henry, Acting Deputy Head of Eco-Innovation and Circular Economy Unit, DG Environment

Kristof De Smet, President, European Network of Environmental Professionals

Jonny Hazell, Senior Policy Adviser, Green Alliance UK

Presentations and discussions will be followed by a networking lunch buffet.
