2nd International RREUSE conference:
Making the circular economy attractive, convenient and inclusive


22 – 23 November 2018
Nijmegen, Netherlands


Registration and agenda coming soon


Encouraging citizens, companies and governments to think second-hand first is not easy. We all want to move towards a circular economy but is it possible without changing our behaviour? Can awareness about the social and environmental value of re-use help guide consumer action? Can more be done to make re-use more attractive and convenient?

To help answer these questions, RREUSE, the European network of social enterprises in re-use, repair and recycling, is delighted to be holding its second annual conference in the city of Nijmegen, Europe’s Green Capital for 2018.

High profile speakers and thinkers ranging from European institutions, public authorities, private industry and social enterprises will present their views in order to stimulate this timely debate on how to reach out to citizens in order to support the circular economy and explore the role that social enterprises have in this transition.

Venue tbc: Nijmegen, Netherlands

Highlights include:

  • Showcasing of innovative initiatives encouraging behavioural change in favour of a circular economy
