Circle Economy - Jobs and Skills Launch Event
About the event
Circle Economy officially launches its Jobs & Skills in the Circular Economy Programme in March 2020. The ambition of the Programme is to ensure a positive transition to circularity for work and workers.
To this end, the programme is set to become a centre of expertise that develops and shares knowledge and best practices on the future of work in the circular economy. To counter fragmentation and duplication of efforts in the field, the programme will closely collaborate with partners from the private sector, the public sector and civil society.
In addition to the launch of the J&S Programme and the partnership, the launch is geared towards knowledge exchange with the private, public and civil society sectors and the broadening of our community within and outside of Europe.
