World Circular Economy Forum
The World Circular Economy Forum (https://bit.ly/3ydYwtk) will, for the first time, take place on African soil in 2022, bringing together participants from around the world to absorb lessons from the continent and the wider global south toward building a more resilient and greener global economy. The Forum will be held from December 6-8, in Kigali, Rwanda.
The 2022 World Circular Economy Forum 2022 (WCEF2022) will present some of the world's best circular economy solutions as well as examine how businesses from Africa and elsewhere can seize new opportunities and gain a competitive advantage in the transition to low-carbon and climate-resilient economies. Business leaders, policymakers and experts from around the world are expected to participate. The first Forum was held in 2017.
Under the theme From Africa to the World, the hybrid-format event will have proceedings livestreamed on big screens in several African cities to drive broad-based engagement with the forum. The format will enable remote participation in discussions about local models and examples of the circular economy.
"With the youngest population in the world, the African continent can take a crucial role in the global transition towards circularity. Rwanda is proud to host the World Circular Economy Forum 2022, showing African leadership and commitment," said Rwanda's Minister of Environment, Jeanne d'Arc Mujawamariya.
Rwanda is a founding member of the African Circular Economy Alliance and serves as co-chair. The government of Rwanda, the African Circular Economy Alliance (ACEA) (https://bit.ly/3QIJuD2), the African Circular Economy Network (ACEN) (www.ACEN.africa), and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra (www.Sitra.fi/en/), will jointly host the event with international partners.
