Yokohama will host the 2018 World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF).
Following the inaugural forum, held in Helsinki last year, it is now heading to Japan, with Sitra, the Finnish Innovation Fund, and the Ministry of the Environment of Japan partnering to deliver the packed programme for WCEF 2018, on from 22-24 October 2018. Watch the event via the Forum website.
“The WCEF2018 will focus on building the future visions for the circular economy. The forum will accelerate discussions on economic benefits and social equity of the circular economy, energy and climate solutions for a circular economy, global value chains and circular trade, as well as mobility revolution and circular solutions for reducing marine plastic waste,” the event website states.
Japan is a leading circular economy nation. It has impressive credentials in this area, with the country’s Olympics in 2020 striving to be the circular games; and major corporations, like Yokogawa committed to being circular by 2050, just two examples.
