As the world’s population and economy grows, the current economic model becomes unsustainable as resources like fossil fuels, raw materials, fresh water, and food become increasingly scarce. Switching to a circular economic model is inevitable, but what does that mean for today’s companies, customers, and legislators?
Opportunities and barriers
In the framework of the Presidency of the EU, the Royal Netherlands Embassy will organize a day-long seminar, "Boosting the Circular Economy", to tackle these questions. The seminar will feature success stories from the international business community, the Netherlands as a circular hotspot, and discussions on government policies from the Netherlands, EU, and US.
Workshops will aim to address the opportunities and barriers encountered when making the transition to a circular business model in various sectors such as urban development, fashion and design, and new business cases. The Netherlands is moving ever closer to a circular economy, where smart innovative products are used to minimize waste of energy and materials.
We look forward to your participation in this effort to boost the circular economy in the U.S.

The seminar is free and open to the public. RSVP here
