Created in 2017, the World Circular Economy Forum is the global initiative of Finland and the Finnish innovation fund Sitra. The Forum was first held in Finland, in 2017; Japan, in 2018; and again in Finland, in 2019.
Canada will host the World Circular Economy Forum—from September 29 to October 1, 2020—in Toronto, marking the first time the international forum will take place in North America. By gathering global circular-economy leaders in Canada, the Forum will open up important discussions on circular-economy opportunities in the natural resource and manufacturing sectors, on leveraging business innovation and clean technology, and on circular solutions contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The World Circular Economy Forum 2020 will be co-organized by Environment and Climate Change Canada, on behalf of the Government of Canada, and Sitra.
