Updated: Nov 16, 2020

27-28 November 2018 | Santiago Chile

CEFA2018 is a 2-day high-level event that offers unique and interactive sessions, work shops, and networking opportunities hosting a wide range of international speakers, including inspirational speakers who encourage reflection and thinking, and developers and practitioners in the field of Circular Economy sharing their practical experience and insights.

A region where the resources, knowledge, capacity and wealth is adequately distributed among its people to satisfy current and future needs while they prosper in harmony with nature. This Circular Economy Platform of the Americas is an initiative powered by the Americas Sustainable Development Foundation (ASDF). ASDF is a non-profit independent advisory foundation that focuses on helping bring about cutting-edge ideas and solutions as Cradle to Cradle® and the Circular Economy to the mainstream across the countries in the Western Hemisphere to realize Sustainable Development.

“How to realize sustainable Circular Economy in the Americas, building a Circular Conscious Continent”

This Platform fills the vacuum for an easy-access one-stop-shop portal where information about Circular Economy from and for the Americas is made available. As the concept of Circular Economy serves as a suitable guiding framework there is a significant space and opportunity for the development of new tools, business models, design methods, and performance criteria to apply in real-life to achieve measurable results toward a Circular Economic reality. By linking people, ideas and actions through this Platform the transition toward a Circular Economy in the Americas is facilitated.

The Circular Economy Platform of the Americas opens new avenues for profitable business, embraces the innovative and positive human intent, and allows for creative thinking and development of eco-friendly products and services to satisfy needs of the people of the Americas. The Platform will increasingly include individuals, businesses, governments, academia and organizations willing and able to engage in promoting, facilitating and help realizing Circular Economy adoption and implementation in the Americas.The challenge ahead is to engage more and more people to become change agents and help translate and materialize this Circular Economy paradigm into practical action and results.
