World Circular Economy Forum 2023

Finland will host the world’s leading circular economy event, WCEF2023 from 30 May to 2 June, co-organised by Nordic Innovation and Sitra, with partners from around the world.

Hosted in Messukeskus, Helsinki, the World Circular Economy Forum 2023 will provide a unique opportunity to create momentum for a nature-positive future. The Forum will present a focused agenda and harness our collective energies on accelerating the needed transition over the coming years, showcasing global change makers and building the capacity to collaborate. WCEF2023 will mark the seventh iteration of the annual Forum and occurs at a pivotal moment for economies, societies and our planet.

WCEF2023 is supported by Side Events which can be organised by anyone, online or in person. These independent events can be held anytime throughout the year, but their timing cannot overlap with the main Forum on 30–31 May or the Accelerator Sessions on 1–2 June. Sitra approves Side Event applications on a rolling basis, and the organisers are responsible for all practicalities and expenses.

To enable participation from around the world, WCEF2023 will be live-streamed online, open to all and free of charge. Attendance in person is by invitation only.
