Leiden meets Circulair

30 May, 14:30 – 19:00

A new edition of Leiden Meets Circular will take place on May 30, 2024. Leiden Meets Circular is an interactive event where you can learn more about the circular economy, share your knowledge and experience with it, or just learn from the experience and expertise of others.

Gemeente Leiden is committed to the transition to a circular economy. For example, there is a grant scheme for circular initiatives and the municipality has taken concrete steps in applying circularity in public space projects in particular. Besides activities of the municipality, there are many citizens, entrepreneurs and knowledge institutions in our city who (want to) do something in the field of the circular economy. To bring together this network of future builders, the municipality of Leiden, together with PLNT, is organizing the event Leiden Meets Circular.

What makes this event so valuable is that it involves topics you care about! These topics can be diverse: are you looking for support, for example, in developing a circular concept, preparing a business plan, or obtaining financing? Or instead, would you like to learn more about how to make an existing business case circular? Then you’ve come to the right place. Leiden Meets Circular provides ideas, contacts and insights from which you can directly benefit.

What can you expect?

The expertise, challenges and questions of the participants determine the program of the event. We build the agenda together by allowing you to suggest topics that are important to you. During the event, we will split into breakouts. Each breakout will focus on one specific topic. The Municipality of Leiden & PLNT will ensure the presence of appropriate experts. After the plenary conclusion, there will be an opportunity for networking and showcasing your product/material.
