Finland-Canada-Netherlands - 3 Countries join forces to advance the circular economy as key to a sustainable recovery
The world needs a sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Led by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, Finland has joined forces with Canada and the Netherlands to host three high level events to address the important role circularity plays in the economies of the future, as well as in the fight against climate change and the nature crisis.

Along with their partners, Sitra will showcase the tools and solutions countries need to build well-being and prosperity by hosting three events under the flagship of the World Circular Economy Forum:

• WCEFonline on 29 and 30 September 2020
• WCEF event on 15 April 2021 in the Netherlands and online
• WCEF2021 on 13–15 September 2021 in Toronto, Canada.

The three events will address the choice we face at this critical juncture. We can find our way back to growth by kicking ‘business as usual’ into overdrive – or we can capitalise on a shift that has already started, the shift towards the circular economy that helps us to thrive in the long term. WCEFonline will demonstrate how the circular economy can enhance resilience on a business and society level; the WCEF event in the Netherlands will address the links between the circular economy and climate; while WCEF2021 in Canada will identify the key actions and systemic changes needed to create the conditions for a thriving global circular economy.

WCEFonline will share leading circular economy solutions for building more resilience The upcoming virtual WCEFonline event will show practical circular economy examples that will help us to seize this unique opportunity to rebuild our economies stronger, greener and better. Throughout six separate sessions, WCEFonline will enable the circular community from all over the world to participate in the discussions.
