The World Circular Economy Forum 2019

Start/End date

The World Circular Economy Forum 2019 was organised on 3-5 June 2019 at Finlandia Hall in Helsinki.

This year’s forum had a strong emphasis on scaling up the circular economy transition by increasing investments into circular economy businesses, spreading and adopting new technologies and making significant regulatory changes that enable the circular economy to flourish around the world.

The event also emphasised that this monumental transition needs to be made in a way that is socially and economically fair and inclusive.

Consisting of 17 plenary and parallel sessions, 12 side sessions and 33 side events spread over three days, spiced with keynotes speeches, thematic discussions, and networking opportunities, the WCEF2019 was a landmark event of the year. Over 2,200 participants attended the WCEF2019 in Helsinki.
