The Circular Events Challenge: Now Open for Ideas

Featured image

From setting up to cleaning up, there is an opportunity every step of the way for circular strategies to improve the impact and legacy of high-profile events and conferences. Organisations around the world are already playing their part: from edible cutlery and biodegradable food packaging to harvesting rainwater, urban farming, and take-back schemes- countless case studies have inspired and energised us as we worked on formulating this challenge, and we hope they spark your imagination and inspire you to submit your own ideas to the platform.

Sponsored by Circular Glasgow, an initiative of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, the challenge is a global call for ideas on how the circular economy can enable local businesses to drive positive change in the events industry. Anyone, anywhere in the world - regardless of field or level of expertise - is welcome to submit their ideas starting today until March 28. Together with partners Zero Waste Scotland, Scottish Event Campus and the Glasgow Convention Bureau and Major Events team at Glasgow Life, Circular Glasgow will be supporting the implementation of winning solutions locally and sharing learnings along the way with our online community.
