Become a CEC Local Organizer

Apply to become the CEC local organizer if you would like to lead the transition towards a #CircularEconomy in your city.

The Circular Economy Club (CEC) is the international non-profit network of over 2,600 circular economy professionals and organisations. CEC is run voluntarily by its own members to connect the circular economy community and give visibility to the best circular initiatives.

As the local organizer and main point of contact for CEC in your city, you will be the visible face that brings the CEC events to life through event planning, marketing and social outreach, connecting with local industry and facilitating networking.


CEC allocates a location-based CEC Licensee for one year from the application date. You will re-apply to renew your license every year. You must live in the city for which you are applying for the license. Local CEC Events are fully planned and coordinated independently by the CEC Local Organizer and holder of the CEC Licensee and follow the guidelines and best practices of the Organizers Checklist.

CEC events are only named after cities (ex.: CEC New York) or Universities (ex.: CEC Stanford University).

Event formats

In that year, you can organise any type of CEC Events for up to 100 people each. Event formats include: social networking events (such as breakfast briefings, after-work drinks, dinners), hands-on workshops or demo days where circular startups pitch their projects to mentors or investors, panel or forum discussions, among others. See more information in the Organizers Checklist.

Areas or sectors

You will focus your evens in circular economy in general or in one specific sector, examples: circular fashion, circular food, circular cities, etc.


Your event must be pragmatic and maintain the spirit of CEC itself: focused on the power of connecting stakeholders, in true collaboration and partnerships.


CEC is a volunteer endeavour. You may not use your CEC events to make money for yourself. You may find sponsors to fund your events and use your events to help build connections.

By organising CEC events, you will have the opportunity to create unique events that will unleash new ideas, inspire and connect the best circular leading individuals, mentors, investors and organisations.
