CEC has worked for me as a strong channel where to show the compromise on the circular future, to have the possibility of meeting other circular advocates and to connect/exchange knowledge and supply demands with the right partner or collaborator. I surely recommend all circular economy supporters to become a member at CEC platform, thus making our voice stronger, spreading our ideas further, and creating a force for change in a broader global group, driving so real applications and actions.
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.
The CEC Circular Economy Mapping Week has shown us that when you get together with like-minded people in a multi-disciplinary and collaborative environment, we can find matching tools, create new solutions and really accelerate the transition.
I would like to thank all the CEC Global Team for their precious and dedicated work. Being part of a network of global Circular Economy practitioners as well as the amazing City Organisers Community has been an empowering and enriching opportunity. I am immensely thankful for all the information collected on the CEC platform which provides a valuable source of knowledge and inspiration. Without the global backup and support, it would not have been possible to built momentum on the Circular Economy in Singapore to this extent.
The Circular Economy Club has been a great help to me as a way of connecting with other circular economy professionals. I was introduced to author and consultant, Catherine Weetman, whose excellent book, “A Circular Economy Handbook for Business and Supply Chains: Repair, Remake, Redesign, Rethink”, I had seen on the CEC website. Catherine and I are now working together to roll out interactive workshops for organisations who are looking to put circular principles into practice.
The CEC team did a great job putting the circular economy on the map, locally and globally. Mostly having been a decentralised bottom-up action one can see the diversity and creativity in approaches, which is what we need at uncertain times; ‘out of the box’ thinking with no prescribed solutions or specific interest groups pushing the agenda! A much-needed initiative, thanks to the Circular Economy Club!
Excitement was paramount during the Circular Economy Mapping Week, as CEC offered a real opportunity to not only have the regional experts talk to each other but it also gave them an opportunity to showcase what is being done in our dynamic region while gaining expertise from other cities around the globe. A true collaborative approach where the CEC brings a clear added value.
Being a member of CEC has enabled me to find some interesting organisations and individuals also involved in pursuing work in the area of circular economy and discuss collaboration ideas. The CEC is therefore a great way to connect with like minds and discover new opportunities.
Its been great working with CEC on the different tasks and projects to promote Circular Economy! The mapping week was a great experience and was put together by a great team that had everything so nicely prepared and covered all the details.
Working as a mentor has also been a great experience. I have connected with people around the world getting to know there projects and expectations of the circular economy. Its been also an opportunity for networking and future work.
The Circular Economy Club has created a huge impact on a global scale by creating an active group of circular economy professionals in a single network. They have hosted insightful and education events on key topics, and have been extremely supportive when trying to help members find solutions, partners or insights for their circular economy initiatives. The role of organisations such as CEC is vital if we are to move towards a circular economy in the future.
