ACR+ will participate in and provide coverage of the 8th World Circular Economy Forum taking place in Brussels from 15 to 18 April 2024, with the aim of translating circular visions into actionable steps. This 2024 edition introduces hands-on workshops and collaborations with key stakeholders in Brussels, including the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference and the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. ACR+ Secretary General will take part in the session titled "The Circular Economy We Want for Europe 2024-2029" on 15 April, exploring the role of the circular economy in addressing climate change and competitiveness in Europe. Participants will analyse gaps in current policy frameworks, highlighting areas requiring urgent EU action for a sustainable future.
