Front-running circular hotspots in Europe: Circular Change (Slovenia), Zero Waste Scotland, Circular Norway, the Luxemburg Ministry of the Economy and Holland Circular Hotspot joined forces by signing a Memordandum of Understanding as the Holland Circular Economy Week came to an end. They share the ambition to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. “Working together we can be so much more effective” says Freek van Eijk, director Holland Circular Hotspot. The hotspots want amongst others to share their best practices, align activities and -input for European policy, and to stimulate the emergence of more circular hotspots. Other national circular hotspots are most welcome to join this initiative and contribute to a Circular Economy in Europe.
