The World Circular Economy Forum 2022 brings together forward-looking thinkers and doers and presents the game-changers in the circular economy for the first time in Africa. WCEF2022 is co-organised by the African Circular Economy Alliance (ACEA), the Republic of Rwanda, the African Circular Economy Network (ACEN) and The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, with international partners.
The WCEF 2022 edition will take place from 6th to 8th December 2022 and will be hosted in Kigali, Rwanda.
WCEF2022 will host several information-packed sessions over 2+1 days. 6 December and 7 December will facilitate seven sessions in Kigali, Rwanda and online. On 8 December Accelerator Sessions will stream, organised by partners anywhere in the world.
Days 1 and 2 will be streamed on our Event Platform. There you will be able to select which sessions you’d like to follow and add them to your Event Calendar. All sessions will also be available for watching later as recordings on the platform and on YouTube.
Can’t get enough of WCEF? Check the list of Side Events from 28 November to 11 December!
WCEF Side Events present circular economy solutions from around the globe and attract an international audience. They address specific topics related to the circular economy and the role circularity plays in the economies of the future, as well as in the fight against climate change and the biodiversity crisis.
WCEF Side Events are part of the World Circular Economy Forum concept. Organisers are responsible for all practicalities, expenses and inquiries related to organising and participating in the Side Events. WCEF Side Events may be organised throughout the year either virtually or locally, depending on COVID-19 restrictions.
All WCEF Side Events organised between 28 November and 11 December 2022 are listed on this page – as well as monthly workshops from July to October that prepare the Forum programme, organised by our co-host ACEN.
