On the sidelines of the COP24 Katowice Climate Summit in December 2018, a cooperation agreement was signed between the Polish Circular Hotspot and several circular networks across Europe, including ECESP Coordination Group member Circular Change, Holland Circular Hotspot, Zero Waste Scotland, Circular Norway and the Luxembourg Ministry of Economy. These organisations also joined the Polish hotspot as supporting organisations.
After signing the cooperation agreement, Dr Agnieszka Szyk, President of INNOWO, founding organisation of the Polish Circular Hotspot said: “I am very honoured and proud that the Polish hotspot has joined such a prestigious circle and will now work together with other organisations to promote the development of the ‘circular economy’, both nationally and internationally. Already today, I invite all those concerned to cooperate as part of the Polish Circular Hotspot”.
Ladeja Godina Košir, Founder and Director of Circular Change and Chair of the ECESP Coordination Group, supported the Polish Circular Hotspot by highlighting the strength of adding this Hotspot to the growing number of inter-connected Circular hubs. Collaboration between national Hotspots aims to contribute to faster exchange of best circular practices and to the implementation of joint international projects.
