The event "Circular Economy Competences Making the Case for Lifelong Learning", hosted on 19 February 2019 at the European Parliament by MEP Silvia Costa and organised by ACR+ in the framework of the Erasmus+ CYCLE project, brought together key actors working on incorporating circular economy competences in education and lifelong learning.
The fully booked event was opened by MEP Silvia Costa, who stressed the importance of mainstreaming circular thinking in lifelong learning policies. Afterwards, Callum Blackburn from ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland gave an introductory speech calling for international cooperation for circular economy education based on strategic partnerships that facilitate mutual learning.

The discussions during the subsequent three panels focused, respectively, on the issue of circular thinking in education; how to upskill waste, repair, and reuse industries; and the evolution of the labour market related to the circular economy.
