Circular Expert Practitioners Seminar:
"Summer reading digest"

25th August 2021 at 9 A.M. and 2 P.M. CET


What are you reading this summer?

Summertime is finally bringing us some more freedom of choice to go places and reach for new points of view. This encourages us to explore our fields of interest in a new way, to look for new sources of inspiration and knowledge or enjoy readings that have been lingering on our bookshelves for some time.

We are excited to announce our next CBA event Circular Expert Practitioners, which will take place on 25th August 2021 online via Zoom. The event is organised in two sessions, at 9 a.m. and at 2 p.m.

Circular Expert Practitioners Violeta Bulc, Karin Huber-Heim, Werner Kössler, Vesna Lavtižar, Katja Hleb, Christoph Püntmann and others will present what they have been reading in their respective field of professional interest to help you get in touch with the latest news from the fields of corporate sustainability, the circular economy and overall transition towards the Ecocivlisation.

Would you like to let us know, what you have been reading these days? Would you like to recommend some of your circular readings with us and share your personal take-aways with other circular expert practitioners?

As we want to engage with our followers, we kindly invite you to fill out a short survey and send us your reading suggestions on the topics of circular economy and sustainable innovation.
