World Circular Economy Forum 2021 Hosted Virtually in Canada

We invite you to register for the circular economy event of the year!  

It’s time to change the game.

Co-organized by the Government of Canada and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra and hosted for the first time in North America, the World Circular Economy Forum brings together forward-looking thinkers and doers and presents the world’s leading game-changers in the circular economy.

Free of charge, open to all.

Hosted virtually from Canada from September 13-15, WCEF2021 will offer three days packed with information, ideas and examples of the circular economy. 

  • Game Changer Sessions will explore crosscutting themes to answer a common question: “What transformational steps can we take in the next five years to catalyze the systemic changes required to scale up a global circular economy that is prosperous, inclusive and equitable?” 
  • Demonstration Sessions will bring the themes of the Game Changer Sessions to life through concrete, inspiring examples of the circular economy “in action”.  
  • Accelerator Sessions will be hosted by partner organizations on September 15. These outcome-oriented events will bridge WCEF2021 with the daily work needed for a circular transition. 

The Forum will also feature a virtual Expo Area to spotlight selected circular economy solutions and approaches, as well as networking opportunities with circular economy enthusiasts from around the world! 

Environment and Climate Change Canada and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra are co-organising WCEF2021 in collaboration with the African Circular Economy Alliance, Circular Economy Leadership Canada, City of Toronto, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the European Commission, Government of Finland, Government of the Netherlands, International Chamber of Commerce, Latin America and the Caribbean Circular Economy Coalition, Nordic Innovation, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Platform for Accelerating the Circular Economy, United Nations Environment Programme, and World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
