By 2050, we will have around 10 billion people living on this planet. Individual actions can sometimes seem irrelevant, while collaborative and collective change appears to have no limits. This is exactly what the Circular Economy Club (CEC) and and WEAll Citizens have demonstrated. They have helped connect and motivate thousands of individuals and organisations behind the goal of developing long-term solutions in local and global communities.

But how did they go about it? That’s what we’ll discover in this live discussion!
