 / THE START OF A MOVEMENT

On 5th February 2019, we are launching the new Circular Economy Switzerland movement in Basel.

We bring actors, activities and ideas together and act as a catalyst for a viable Switzerland. The full-time event on 5th February marks the beginning of a new, Swiss-wide movement.

The all-day event in the morning aims to present the various activities and projects in the area of circular economy in Switzerland, to present inspiring examples and to network the stakeholders among each other. In the afternoon, the focus will be on cities and urban spaces as centres of innovative cycles. Together we wish to discuss existing cycle solutions and take up future approaches of innovative start-ups.

FINAL ROUND!

Designing a circular Future | Impulse event Engagement Migros

 

"People just talk and do not do what they say" was the verdict of climate activist Greta Thunberg after her visit to the WEF in Davos. But how do we come from words to concrete acts and solutions? At our impulse event, we will discuss this question with two representatives of the Swiss climate strike, with National Councilor Bastien Girod, with the initiators of #movethedate Switzerland, and with architect Michael Pawlyn from London.

The event starts at 18:30 (door opening at 18:15).

The event takes place in German and English and is translated from German into French.

The detailed programme for the event can be found here.
