World Circular Economy Forum 2019

The 3rd World Circular Economy Forum, hosted by SITRA, will occur on 3-5 June 2019 in Helsinki, Finland. The WCEF2019 will bring together around 2,000 key circular economy thinkers and doers from around the world. This year the forum will have a strong emphasis on the next era of the circular economy and scaling up the transition.

One of the speakers at this year’s forum will also be Circular Change Executive Director, Ladeja Godina Košir. She will be introducing CE Roadmap in Slovenia in the session titled Governance and Circular Economy Roadmaps, held on 3rd June between 14:30 and 16:00.


The World Circular Economy Forum 2019 will build on the forums of 2017 and 2018. The WCEF 2017 identified key elements of a circular economy and showcased solutions and learnings from around the world. The WCEF 2018 painted visions of a circular future to strive towards and encouraged the world’s leading economies to set out on this path.

In the next era of the circular economy, it’s time to transform “the best kept secret” into global impact. Great solutions have been identified all over the world. We now need to scale things up.

The WCEF 2019 will have a strong emphasis on scaling up the circular economy transition. This involves growing investments into circular economy businesses, spreading and adopting new technologies and making significant regulatory changes that enable the circular economy to flourish.

The WCEF brings together business leaders, policymakers and experts to present the world’s best circular economy solutions.

The next era of the circular economy must be even more circular, but also fairer and more inclusive. The circular economy must benefit both the rich and the poor globally.

Consisting of 17 plenary and parallel sessions with keynotes speeches, thematic discussions and networking opportunities, WCEF2019 is a landmark event of the year. Approximately 2,000 participants are expected to attend the WCEF2019.

The WCEF2019 is by invitation only. If you are interested in attending the event or have other questions about the WCEF2019, send us an email to wcef2019(at)
