It is the third and final day of what has been an inspiring EcoProcura conference – focused on sustainable, strategic, circular and innovation procurement.
Paul Louis Iske, from the Institute of Brilliant Failures, kicked things off today with an enlightening and engaging speech about the road to success being ‘built on the ashes of brilliant failures’. We will be speaking to Paul later today for our podcast, which is going to be one worth listening to.
Innovators Magazine is media partners with the event, which is taking place in the European Green Capital 2018, Nijmegen, and is organised by the Local Governments for Sustainability Europe (ICLEI). We have been posting on social media throughout. Follow all the action from the final day using the hashtag
Congratulations also to last night’s award winners, the cities of Barcelona, Rotterdam, and the Government of Flanders, recognised for their pioneering initiatives in public procurement.

@pauliske at #ecoprocura : key takeaway. Failure is good: there are 2 sides of failing: the failure itself and the courage of trying something new. Some of the most successful companies have been built on the ashes of brilliant failures. Very inspiring @ICLEI_Europe @sppglobal pic.twitter.com/K0FctSyWkJ
