Toronto, Canada | 13th until 15th of September 2021

Building on previous forums, WCEF2021 will focus on the system-level changes, or “game-changers,” needed to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. Seizing the circular opportunity requires transformational change and collective efforts by businesses, policymakers, civil society, and others. Accordingly, WCEF2021 will bring together global leaders and experts to drive ambitious action to accelerate the transition to a prosperous, inclusive, and equitable circular economy over the next five years.

Hosted in North America for the first time, WCEF2021 will bring dynamic new voices to the global discussion, explore circular opportunities from the perspective of natural resource-producing countries, and highlight the critical importance of the circular economy to fight climate change protect biodiversity.

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 and networking opportunities with circular economy enthusiasts from around the world!
