Circular Europe Days at the Dubai Expo: the ECESP goes global

10 Dec 2021

On 17 and 18 January 2022 the ECESP Coordination Group  will present the Europe's pioneering work done by its Leadership groups in the field of the circular economy before a global audience at the Circular Europe Days in Dubai.

The role of the 24-member Coordination Group is to implement the ECESP objectives and foster the debate on circularity. They lead the conversation on the ground and Europe-wide on the top circular issues within thematic working groups known as Leadership groups.

The Circular Europe Days will take place during the Dubai Expo Global Goals Week, coinciding with the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, which will attract an international audience including High State representatives.

The programme is rich and varied and covers various themes, ranging from buildings and infrastructure, circular procurement, electronics, economic incentives, food waste and more. European Commissioners, members of the European Parliament, and representatives of the European institutions' highest levels, will join the event to present Europe's vision for the circular economy.

Five Member States (Ireland, Slovenia, The Netherlands, Poland and Finland) will be hosting the Circular Europe Days in their pavilions, highlighting national efforts to transition towards the circular economy.

There will also be matchmaking opportunities, supported by the Enterprise Europe Network, for businesses onsite and online to facilitate collaboration, urging further action towards a sustainable and inclusive future. During 6 days you can book meetings with interesting parties, involved in circular economy from all over the world!

The first 2 days (17-18 January)) the meetings will be hybrid: onsite for the people in Dubai and online for the others. From 19-22 January the meetings will be 24/7 online for all participants (‘longterm’ matchmaking). The matchmaking event is free and open for all participants, joining the Dubai EXPO, participating at missions and other organisations in the world, active in the field of circular economy.
