Circular Economy Mapping Week is an initiative by Circular Economy Club (CEC) in order to map circular economy initiatives around the globe and will take place from the 5-11 February 2018; when volunteer organisers all over the world will set up group sessions to map the circular economy in their cities.

The 2050 Climate Group are running a mapping session in Edinburgh and the event aims to expand your knowledge around circular initiatives taking place in the city. It is also an opportunity to socialise with others who either work or are interested in the circular economy and brainstorm future projects.

During the session, you will work in teams to identify circular initiatives happening in Edinburgh, across different sectors and types of organisations.

At the end of the collaborative session you will get a clear idea of the state of the circular economy in Edinburgh. You will also have the chance to learn about what other peers are doing worldwide, as CEC will share the outcomes of all sessions happening globally, online for free. After the session, the list of stakeholders will be publicly available on CEC’s website for participants and the general public.

  • Established companies and Start-ups in the energy sector, agriculture, construction, textiles/fashion, electronics, renewable energies, etc
  • Consultants, Business leaders and Strategists
  • Education professionals and Researchers
  • NGOs and professional associations
