What do Glasgow, Cork, Nijmegen, Basel and Freiburg have in common?
They are all going to be hosting major events linked to the circular economy this autumn.
Next month, Global Game Changers (GGC) 2018, from Innovators Magazine and Newsquest Media, is an event which rewards cross-sector impact towards the UN Global Goals. The Circular Breakthrough title up for grabs, supported by the Circular Glasgow initiative – has attracted a record number of entries from circular economy pioneers worldwide. While it is too late to enter, booking is open to attend the GGC ceremony, being held in Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel on 12 September. Read more on what to expect on the night and book your tickets.
The Circular Ocean Seminar in Cork, also in September, is open for registration.
“The half day seminar will delve into the harsh realities of marine pollution, bringing together a selection of experts directly involved in initiatives that work to combat the dangers of marine plastic, while also introducing potential solutions for reuse, recycling or reprocessing of end of life fishing net material, uncovered by the project’s international partners. Guest speakers will include representatives from Volvo Ocean Race, Ghost Fishing International and Clean Coasts. MC for the morning will be critically acclaimed comedian, columnist, broadcaster and Clean Coasts advocate Colm O’Regan,” the event website states.
In October, two events we are media partners with catch the eye. The EcoProcura conference, from 3 to 5 October, taking place in the 2018 European Green Capital, Nijmegen, will talk sustainable, circular and innovation procurement. Serial pioneer Bertrand Piccard is the keynote speaker and registration is open for that one.
Later in the month, the Local Renewables Conference in Freiburg and Basel, with its theme: Urban transformation to a circular economy – from 24 to 26 October – also has a packed programme for attendees to participate in.
