Is a Circular Economy the key to fight Climate Change?  How can Germany and the UK efficiently cooperate in future projects to tackle Climate Change together? 

Join our digital workshop to explore the links between Climate Change and Circular Economy on a deeper level. Listen to short expert lectures from UK and German representatives, take part in the subsequent Q&A and get actively involved through the breakout sessions. Participants of the workshop are keen on engaging internationally and see potential in cross-national cooperation. The digital workshop on Climate Change & Circular Economy is co-organised by the British Embassy Berlin, the UK Science and Innovation Network Germany (SIN) and BABLE.
