4 LEVELS - 4 PERSPECTIVES
GLOBAL LEVEL: In order to enable future generations to live in the best possible conditions, human activities on the planet must take existing limits into consideration. “Keeping resources in the production and consumption cycle as long as possible is not only the best way to address environmental pressures and climate change, but also the most powerful way to strengthen European global competitiveness.” This are the words of dr. Janez Potočnik, Former Commissioner for the Environment for the European Commission and Co-chair, UNEP International Resource Panel, describing the potential of circular economy, new economic model.
CITY LEVEL: Ljubljana as a Green capital of Europe, other North and Central EU capitals and cities, have developed their systems of waste management and have already achieved a great success. Now we need to find the role of each CITY is in the transition towards CIRCULAR ECONOMY. Mayors, city managers and company’s top-experts from Ljubljana, Vienna, Belgrade, Zagreb, Sarajevo, Budapest, Skopje, Cetinje, Moscow and other capitals and cities will exchange their experiences and propose concrete solutions going beyond waste management, addressing systemic circular change.
COMPANY LEVEL: In this top-level forum we will also discuss examples and best practices and organize B2B sessions in the field the main topic of the forum: waste management and recycling, clean water, green energy and smart systems for companies – leaders from Slovenia, Croatia, Slovakia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Hungary, as well as from Austria, Italy, Scandinavia, Russia and other ECO growing countries will contribute to this circular business brainstorming.
SOCIETY LEVEL: together with official and professional authorities, CITIZENS need to be 100% involved in systematic changes enabling implementation of circular economy. In the Forum the idea to create and manage national ecological touristic festival ADRIATIC ECO FEST for Slovenia and other interested countries in May 2018 (in Ljubljana), will be discussed.
