Event description: 

The general theme for the Forum is "Closing Loops - Transitions at Work".

With this theme, WRF 2019 wants to focus on practice. The vision and knowledge to close cycles and to evolve towards a circular economy is often already available. Now it's time to put that theory and knowledge into practice.

The Conference will focus on;

  • Cities and regions as laboratories for circular change
  • Circular economy as an enabler for climate change
  • Circular bio-economy: Food and bio based materials
  • Industrial transformation: the role of industry 4.0 as a technological driver for circular economy
  • Non-toxic cycles
  • Soil and land as valuable resources: circular economy and spatial planning
  • Sustainable waste and materials management
  • The role of harbours in global resource policy, and specifically on e-waste
