On 14 April 2021 REVOLVE Circular organized an online press briefing to inform and sensitize journalists on the circular economy. Four panelists highlighted the opportunities and challenges of circularity, and why more efforts are needed to educate citizens, business leaders, policy-makers and the media on the emerging paradigm.
The press briefing was an official side event to the World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) organized by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, and also provided the opportunity to present Imagine Circularity, the first-ever global survey initiative engaging citizens and other stakeholders around the world to provide their views, perceptions and ideas on what the circular economy is from their point of view.
