Just2ce participated to the World Circular Economy Forum through an Accelerator session on December 8 th


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.

WCEF is a global initiative of Finland and the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra. The first Forum, WCEF2017, identified key elements of a circular economy and showcased solutions and learnings from around the world, bringing together 1,500 people from more than 100 countries

As the world adjusted to the impacts of COVID-19, in 2020 WCEFonline presented the circular solutions to rebooting the world’s economy and opened its doors to more than 4,200 participants through its new online format. In 2021, there were two big events. WCEF+Climate focused on the crucial role of a circular economy in achieving climate neutrality. The main event WCEF2021 in Toronto, Canada focused on seizing circular opportunities, reaching over 26,000 participants from 134 countries.

In this session, participants explored the concept of a circular economy and what transitioning to circularity implies for North-South relations; and how existing power relations might hamper this much needed transition.
