Brussels 2022 WEEE Forum Event Final Logo

Event type:



The WEEE Forum, the world’s biggest association of e-waste producer responsibility organisations that manage the collection and treatment of electrical and electronic waste, is turning 20 this year. 2022 is also the 20th anniversary of the world’s first supranational Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) legislation on electrical and electronic waste: EU Directive 2002/96/EC.

The EPR Grand Challenge conference to take place in Brussels on 7 December will celebrate these achievements, reflect on the past and ponder the future. What lessons have we learnt over the past two decades? How can we improve the design of EPR legislation? How can legislation set us on a sustainable course and make the economy more circular, more resilient and more self-reliant? How can we collectively address the worldwide societal challenge of e-waste?

08 Dec 2022

This EU Circular Talk on 8 December will focus on the role of network governance; building a coalition of partners willing to contribute to transformational changes will promote the implementation of circular economy roadmaps at national and local levels. One of the main objectives of the session is to present and discuss the role of transition brokers in accelerating circular initiatives.

These intermediaries (also hub leaders) coordinate the circular transition with different actors (such as industry, local governments, research and educational institutes and civil society). Transition brokers can fulfil various functions in setting up network governance, from helping build circular initiatives to upscaling them by linking successful local case studies to national policy and agenda setting.

This event is an Accelerator Session at the World Circular Economy Forum 2022.
