Apply for the Circular Economy Award Programme The Circulars 2018


Circular Change is the hub for gathering applications from Central and Eastern Europe

The Circulars, an initiative of the World Economic Forum and the Forum of Young Global Leaders, is the world’s premier circular economy awards program. The awards are open to individuals and organizations from commerce and civil society in seven distinct categories. The awards are designed to recognize and celebrate, on a prestigious global stage, all facets of the circular economy movement. Now its fourth year, the awards ceremony will take place at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos in January 2018. Last year, over 200 entrants from 37 countries entered, ranging from some of the world’s largest multinationals to the most innovative start-ups. Entries for the 2018 program are now open. Visit The Circulars website for more information and to apply for this year’s program! The list of all winners and finalists together with short introduction of their projects is available in the Circulars Yearbook 2017.

Once again Circular Change is teaming up with the World Economic Forum, Accenture and the Forum of Young Global Leaders to showcase the very best circular economy companies, organizations and individuals for the world’s first and only circular economy award programme.

During last year’s successful campaign, Circular Change coordinated the application process of 11 Slovenian companies, the fourth largest number of participants of any country! When Valtex was selected as a finalist for the best municipal, communal of regional project, this was a recognition of the Slovenian circular economy sector as a whole and Circular Change was proud to play a part in attracting international attention on Slovenia.

This year, we are deepening our cooperation with the Circulars by becoming a regional supporter of the awards. Circular Change plans to team up with friendly organizations from Central and Eastern European countries and make sure that no circular pioneer from the region goes unnoticed.
