WCEF Studios

WCEF Studios are local events that support the main Forum – African Studios from cities across Africa and Global Studios from anywhere around the world.

Studios deliver all or part of the main Forum programme while incorporating additional elements to select local audiences. Studio hosts are responsible for all practicalities and expenses related to organising the event.

This year, there are two kinds of WCEF Studios available. The locations for WCEF2022 African Studios will be published in early October alongside a call for Global Studio applications.

WCEF2022 African Studios will be organised by the African Circular Economy Network (ACEN) to help engage a large live participation throughout the continent. African Studios bring the programme of the main event live streamed on a big screen in select locations around Africa and give an opportunity for discussions on local circular economy examples and networking.

If you are interested in collaborating with ACEN to organise a WCEF2022 African Studio, please contact ACEN is a co-host of the main Forum.

WCEF2022 Global Studios are local events that support the main Forum from anywhere in the world. In addition to the African Studios, Global Studios can also be organised on the African continent. Global Studios are co-ordinated and approved by Sitra.
