At the Circular Economy Club (CEC), we believe it is crucial to connect experts on the circular economy with young students, professionals, and startups who are trying to embed the circular economy in their projects. For that reason, CEC launched the Mentors program, connecting CEC Members who have vast experience in implementing circularity with those who can benefit from their expertise.


If you are looking to increase your skills and expertise in the circular economy field, you can now gain the CEC Official Certificate "Principles & Business Models in a Circular Economy". If what you need is advice to further develop your circular project, feel free to apply to get free CEC Mentoring following the steps below.


42 Mentors            250 Hours of mentorship         118 Circular Projects supported



Parallel to the on-going CEC Mentors program, the club is running a series of Mentorship opportunities with the world’s leading circular economy promoters who join the program as Guest Mentors.




I commend the work CEC is doing through the Mentors program


It is crucial for those of us who have been studying our economies for decades, to transmit our knowledge to the leaders of tomorrow. I commend the work CEC is doing through the Mentors program and therefore I am showing my support by being a Guest Mentor.
