In Hamburg, the event was organized in the name of CEC by Cirkla Modo with the great support of Grüner Hering and the participation of  TexAid, Tchibo and HAW Department of Design.

During the event, beside appreciating two presentations on circular practices from the industry, the participants also worked in the identification of current Circular Economy activities, presented their offers and demands, and investigated possible future collaborations to continue to encourage, inspire and bring the city to the circular spotlight!
