BALKANS GO CIRCULAR 2023

Experts insight and new generations

For the third time we have the honor to organize the regional conference Balkans Go Circular. Our goal is to gather in one place all relevant circular economy actors from our region: from competent ministers and representatives of institutions, through the business sector and innovators, all the way to university professors, students and media representatives.

The conference program has been carefully designed to respond to the key challenges in this field, combining the valuable experience of large companies with the agility of small businesses and innovative solutions of the most promising students.

Despite the fact that I consider myself to be an expert on the circular economy in the construction sector, this conference was a huge learning experience for me. We discussed from different points of view, emphasizing the importance of a multidisciplinary approach. I am glad that there were also students in the audience, because it is essential to pass on knowledge to the younger generations, who will be the bearers of certain processes in the future.

Dr. Anna-Vera Deinhammer Director for Circular Cities & Regions, Circular Economy Forum Austria

I am extremely pleased to have been a part of the Balkans Go Circular conference and to have met great people involved in the circular economy in the Balkans. I am glad that the conference gathered a significant number of people and initiated a conversation between experts, professors, and businessmen, which is the essential beginning of the transition towards circularity in the Balkans.

Francesca Montevecchi Project coordinator and environmental expert, Environment Agency Austria, Waste & Material Flow Management

I congratulate the team for successfully organizing this conference for the second time. Balkans Go Circular is a fantastic initiative that connects experts, decision makers and representatives of the business sector from the Balkans and beyond. We agreed that informing about regional development, as well as encouraging cooperation and joint action of interested parties are key aspects to focus on.

Harald Friedl An activist

We are glad to have been part of this well-attended conference. The hybrid format was particularly effective in reaching regional and European audiences. We look forward to future cooperation, as the EBRD remains committed to supporting the implementation of the circular economy.

Aleksandra Miladinović Western Balkans Regional Coordinator for Policy Dialog and Stakeholders Relations, SME Finance & Development European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)

During the Balkans Go Circular conference, we gained a wealth of knowledge and I am especially glad that prominent speakers from Serbia, Europe and beyond joined us at this conference. We have laid the groundwork for future Balkans Go Circular conferences, with the hope that each year its impact will continue to expand.

Good luck!

CEllenge and this conference are not just events; they are powerful agents of change. By hosting this challenge at the University of Belgrade, we send a clear message that education is crucial in establishing the circular economy as a standard. Without integrating this vital area into the academic framework, whether as a course, module, or even an entire program in ndergraduate and master’s studies, we risk not fully utilizing the potential of the circular economy in our region.

 The conference Balkans Go Circular 2023 and the gathering of businessmen and scientists SPIN ’23 join forces this year in a unique collaboration organized by the Faculty of Organizational Sciences of the University of Belgrade, the Center for Operational Management, the Serbian Chamber of Commerce and the Belgrade Chamber of Commerce. This synergy aims to present scientific and professional perspectives on the one hand, and to directly engage the economy on the other. The focus is on “Digital and green development of the economy”, which provides a complete insight into the potentials and challenges of the circular economy from multiple aspects.

This approach enables a holistic understanding and practical application of the circular economy, making from this gathering a real opportunity for anyone who wants to be at the forefront of sustainable development in the region.
