About the event
Each day of this year's Circular Week will be dedicated to a different area of the circular economy. During panel discussions, workshops, and webinars, we will discuss challenges and opportunities for the development of circularity in specific sectors of the economy. There will also be networking sessions connecting various stakeholders, virtual and stationary trade fairs of circular companies, and roundtable sessions.
The main objective of the Circular Week initiative is to educate about circular economy and sustainable development and promote sustainable businesses and solutions. We show the advantages of closing the loop and the positive impact of sustainable consumption and production on the environment, biodiversity, and climate change. Circular Week promotes also efficient, innovative, green solutions and effective systemic changes. It aims as well to raise awareness, consumer behavior change, and support public commitment to circular transformation.

Previous Circular Week Editions
"Together for a sustainable future" is the slogan of one of Europe's largest events promoting sustainability and circular economy solutions.
The last anniversary edition of Circular Week was held in October 2022 and gathered more than 3,000 participants from all over Europe. The congress was organized by the Institute for Innovation and Responsible Development INNOWO in cooperation with the Mazovian Regional Government and more than 30 institutions, companies, start-ups, and embassies.
"Let's stop just thinking and start acting because we are the people we've been waiting for" urged Guido Braam, an expert on the circular economy, to make the change.
During the last 5th edition of Circular Week, there were 50 expert panels, workshops, meetings, and webinars to present solutions to the key challenges of the circular economy: extended producer responsibility, prevention of food waste, development of the bioeconomy, challenges facing the fashion industry or the future of recyclable materials.
