Environmental champions from South Wales can hear from a range of leading experts on the Circular Economy at an upcoming free conference that will offer innovative solutions to the global challenges of climate change and sustainability.

The Circular Economy Innovation Communities (CEIC) Spring Conference will take place on Friday 24th March 2023 at Stadium, and will feature keynote speakers from across Europe discussing the Circular Economy and the impact the climate emergency is having globally.

CEIC, run by Cardiff Metropolitan University in collaboration with Swansea University, gives employees across the public and third sectors the opportunity to collaborate in developing solutions to global challenges.

International keynote speakers include Dr Emil Evenhuis, a researcher of Urban and Regional Development within the Department of Urbanisation and Transport of PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. Dr Evenhuis will discuss how cities and regions should engage with economic change and the spatial implications of transitioning to a circular and sustainable economy, using findings from a study based in the Netherlands.

The conference will also share best practice and success stories from public services across Wales to demonstrate well-designed programmes producing incremental change with a substantial impact. Professionals involved in the Swansea Bay and Cardiff Capital regions will also share the innovative work they have been doing through CEIC and within their organisations.

The CEIC Spring Conference is free and will take place from 09:00-15.30. To register, visit here
