Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce organizes a Company Mission during the WCEF2023 and invites all EEN client companies and advisers interested in circular economy from any country to join.
This year the WCEF2023 will focus on the “How”, inviting especially businesses, financiers and youth to pinpoint the potential and bottlenecks in advancing circular solutions.
The forum will explore circular solutions for nature and economy, covering a variety of topics, such as: finance, accounting and metrics, everyday life and health, future skills, regenerative agriculture and forestry, finite materials and energy, mining, trade, strategies and road maps, fashion and textiles, food, construction and the built environment, plastics and packaging, electronics, and hydrogen.
WCEF2023 will be live-streamed online, open to all and free of charge. Attendance onsite is by invitation only. By joining our company mission you will get your personal invitation to attend.
The company mission participants will have access to Networking and Expo areas as well as a mobile app for networking throughout the Forum. The expo is a curated space for Forum attendees to engage with innovative and inspiring circular economy solutions demonstrated by leading organizations and businesses from around the world.
Tuesday May 30 and Wednesday May 31 will be the main days of the expo. Thursday and Friday (June 1 and 2) there will be several Accelerator Sessions organized by WCEF2023 partners onsite and online. They will be outcome-oriented and pose an opportunity for deeper audience engagement.
We are exploring the possibility of organizing business visits to a few innovative start-ups and/or established Finnish companies. When signing-up to company mission we kindly ask you to let us know your preferences for the company visits. These visits are open to the company mission participants only.
