What is WCEF?

The annual World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) presents the world’s leading circular economy solutions with business leaders, policymakers, and experts participating from around the world.

Circular economy approaches can help businesses seize new opportunities and gain a competitive advantage, as well as contribute to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Since 2017, the Forum has brought together tens of thousands of stakeholders from over 134 countries. Held in Africa for the first time, the 2022 Forum in Kigali will explore major themes relevant to Africa’s development in which circularity could play a big role, including climate and nature, youth, infrastructure, entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as trade and value chains.

Live participation is by invitation only; online participation is free of charge and open to all.
