Are you the new host for the 2025 Hotspot Event?

June 07, 2024

The Circular Economy Hotspot community is launching an open call to find a North/Central American host for its 2025 edition, offering the ideal opportunity to highlight local circular practices, from business models and innovative industrial solutions to progressive regional and national policies. 


What's the concept?

This globetrotting event aims to highlight innovative circular economy practices. Its international and diverse outlook promotes an exchange of ideas and experiences between policymakers, entrepreneurs, researchers, and captains of industry from the host country and beyond. 

The Circular Economy Hotspot was first organized in the Netherlands in 2016. Since its inception in the Netherlands in 2016, the event has traveled to Luxembourg, Scotland, Belgium, Catalonia, Nord Rhine Westphalia, Dublin, Lagos, and Santiago de Chile and this year, it’s hosted in Canada, South Africa, Wales, and Brazil.

In 2025, Slovenia and Ethiopia will be the Hotspot Events for Europe and Africa.

Each host puts together a program that highlights how their country or region is contributing to the transition towards a circular economy. 

How can you apply?

National and regional governments and organizations from this region can send in their applications up until 21st of June, 2024.
