Welcome to the Experience Sharing Community
The Experience Sharing Community is a hub for stakeholders in the value chain. We wish to create Cluster Circles, which are smaller community where challenges, best practices and ideas can flourish between people, and we hope to foster a spirit of positive thinking and creativity needed to find common solutions for an effective transition from a linear to a circular model.
Focus for the communities will be centered around challenges and opportunities that smaller groups of industry sectors have in common. Currently we are investigating where the interest and energy is for establishing these Cluster Circles, and based on feedback we will establish groups and plan activities throughout the year.
Activities could embrace company visits, inspirational speakers, expert presentations (e.g. related to material science, policies, design thinking, circular strategies) or group exercises and discussions.
Please send an expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org where you explain who you are, your motivation, which company your represent and your wishes for a Cluster Circle focus.
