The Webinar on “Circular Economy in the COVID-19 Era: Challenges and Opportunities” took place on 24 November 2020 and was jointly organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia and the EU-LAC Foundation within the framework of the LAC days organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia. The seminar was moderated by Ernesto Jeger, Programme Manager of the EU-LAC Foundation. The recording is available on the EU-LAC Foundation’s Website.
The objective of the Webinar was to provide a platform to share experiences and good practices, shed light upon projects and advancements, and to raise awareness on the importance of circularity, which provides an alternative to traditional notions of a linear economy. In particular, the potential of a circular economy for a green recovery post-COVID-19 and the importance of global cooperation were emphasised. The structure of the Webinar was divided into three panels, which were dedicated to: global outreach, national circular pathways and multilateral platforms.
