It’s time for a circular economy transformation. Three days, three sessions, one big idea.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation Summit 21 will take place online from 8th to 10th June — and for the first time, the event will be open to everyone.
Every year, the Summit brings together leaders, innovators, and pioneers who are working to accelerate the global transition to a circular economy.
Together, we’ll explore how we can shift our broken system to create long-term economic growth and address some of the biggest global challenges we face, including climate change, waste and pollution, and biodiversity loss.
Fix the economy, fix the climate
Tuesday June 8th June: 12:00 (GMT+1)
The waste and disposability in today’s economy are fuelling climate change and the destruction of biodiversity. We talk with global leaders about how the circular economy can help us tackle the root causes of these global challenges, by eliminating waste, creating new sources of value, and regenerating nature.
Growth in a circular economy
Wednesday June 9th: 12:00 (GMT+1)
As governments and industries respond to the economic shock of Covid-19 we explore how the circular economy can redefine growth, giving us the power to grow prosperity, jobs, and resilience while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, waste, and pollution.
Shifting the system
Thursday June 10th: 12:00 (GMT+1)
The circular economy is a bigger idea than simply switching one material for another, or recycling better – it’s about creating interconnected solutions to meet interconnected challenges, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. We explore what it takes to think in systems, and how it can help us solve some of the biggest challenges we face today.
