About the event


Circular City Week is about convening everyone across sectors, inspire to action and be a vehicle for circular change. We will end the week on a high note at the official closing celebration with inspiring and energizing discussions together with large Nordic corporates. We will focus on their approach to innovation as catalyzer for a circular transition. The aim is to showcase the role of innovation and what necessary components must be aligned to build a regenerative system at scale.


A systematic approach is needed to open up circular economy opportunities, starting with re-thinking existing models, incentives, and linear structures. Innovation is a key driver to make circular economy flourish, but simply promoting innovation is not enough. What is needed to realize the full potential of innovation and what barriers must be eliminated to stimulate a circular system? Nordic corporate leaders who are committed to a circular economy pathway are coming together discussing strategies and incentives needed to leveraging innovation and fueling the transition to a circular economy. 

This year, the closing event will be a delightful in-person gathering with inspirational talks that invites to forward-thinking and collaborative action. The event will end on a celebrative tone served with light food and beverages while overlooking the New York City skyline.
