  • 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
  • Online

You are invited to join virtually at the World Circular Economy Forum 2022. Hosted in Africa for the first time, WCEF2022 will be held in Kigali, Rwanda and online. Titled From Africa to the World, the Forum 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. We expect participants from all over the world. 


The first two days day of the Forum will offer unique views, innovative ideas, rousing panel discussions and inspiring examples. The third day is reserved for partner-led Accelerator Sessions that can take place anywhere around the world or online to bridge the Forum with the daily work needed for a circular transition. 
Additionally, WCEF2022 Studios will offer possibilities for live participation and local collaboration in select locations around Africa and the world. Below you can find a description of these. 

Register now to participate online! Once registered, you will receive our newsletter with regular updates on the Forum programme, VIP attendees as well as interesting case examples and articles. Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone who might be interested in joining the event.
