On Wednesday, January 17, 2024, leading Captains of Circularity from Limburg and the Euregion gathered at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus. This event, initiated by Maastricht University, Studio Europa Maastricht and the Maastricht Sustainability Institute, brought together an exclusive group of decision-makers, thinkers and doers.
The daylong program offered an in-depth exploration of the value of knowledge sharing and forging connections for circular solutions. Participants delved into blind spots and dilemmas in current policy and operations, creating constructive dialogue.
The day was characterized by inspiring insights, dynamic conversations and a fruitful exchange of knowledge within the field of circular solutions and sustainability.
A special highlight was the handing over of the Special Policy Brief Collections – Circular Economy by Professor Nancy Bocken to Marieke Spijkerboer, Director Sustainable Living Environment and Circular Economy at Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. These special collections address topics high on the EU agenda and were selected by our Academic Council.
