On February 24-27 2019, co-hosted by the Public Waste Agency of Flanders (OVAM) and the Swiss Federal Office of Environment (FOEN), the World Resources Forum 2019 took place in Antwerp, Belgium.
Stakeholders from business, science & research and governments were equally represented (60% of participants), and also students, NGOs, and international organizations joined us.
Over the 3 days, the participants had the chance to visit 7 circular sites in Antwerp and in Ghent.
The WRF’19 conference has boosted our common knowledge about the circular economy approach and how to make it work. It has inspired us all to keep fighting and to keep building a sustainable future together
