Schedule changes as response to COVID-19
As the health and safety of partners, attendees, event hosts and staff is of utmost importance to the us and hosts, the program of Circular City Week is undertaking a range of changes. Out of an abundance of caution, many activities have been cancelled, postponed or transitioned into online sessions.
We will consistently keep the event calendar updated, and all activities is subjected to the progression of COVID-19 and authorities recommendations and guidelines.
Obviously we are sad that this year Circular City Week New York is not going to progress as planned, but nothing tops the health and safety of our attendees. But we are happy that making Circular City Week primarily a virtual festival, we are still able to advance the debate under the current circumstances. Driving awareness about the immense economic, environmental and social potential of adopting circular practices across industries is as relevant as ever.
