From 24 to 27 February 2019, the World Resources Forum and OVAM, will present inspiring keynotes and global sessions, challenging workshops and fascinating site visits in close collaboration with dozens of partners and stakeholders. All with one common goal: showing how to close the loop and make the transition towards a circular economy work.
The World Resources Forum 2019 puts its focus on closing resource loops and circular economy in practice, as a lever to achieve the Agenda 2030 commitments. The challenge we face of a low carbon and circular society is well known. With a view to the post-2020 era, WRF2019 takes stock of solutions and practices taking place in many parts of society to move from a linear and fossil to a circular and low carbon economy. Where are the opportunities, what works, what does not, and why?
Thematic ‘Global Sessions’, with inspiring voices from leading experts will set the scene on key topics. Interactive workshops will allow to dive deeper into selected topics. Networking events and site visits are an integral part of the program.
Furthermore, the E-loop Challenge calls for students from all educational and geographical backgrounds who like to become masters in dealing with the problem of e-waste. It creates a unique contest to dive into this problem and design inspiring solutions.
