From Global Insights to Local Action
Join us on a journey from global insights to local action at the inaugural event of Closing the Circle, hosted at Impact Hub's new offices in Penha da França.

In this gathering, we'll dive into practical approaches for advancing circular economy principles within Lisbon's vibrant ecosystem.

Our lineup of speakers aim to present a comprehensive view of circularity:

  • Lou Tamaehu-Plovier: Bringing a global perspective, Lou from Circle Economy will delve into insights from the Circularity Gap Report 2024, shedding light on the overarching trends driving the circular economy movement worldwide.

  • Lourenço Gouveia Booth: Grounding us in the local context, Lourenço, Lisboa Unicorn Capital's innovation ecosystem builder and CENSE researcher on Circular Cities, will navigate through Lisbon's circular economy landscape. From the city's startup ecosystem to its integrated action plan, Lourenço will offer insights into Lisbon's journey towards circularity.

  • Francisca Shearman de Macedo: Drawing from her CSR background and entrepreneurial journey, Francisca offers practical strategies for waste reduction, recycling, and upcycling. Through her work with United to Remake, she'll demonstrate how local initiatives can drive tangible impact in Lisbon.

In addition to our speakers, Impact Hub Lisbon will showcase the Cascade project, creating Awareness and Skills for Circular Approaches in the Digital Economy.

Join us as we bridge global insights with local action, paving the way for a sustainable and resilient future for Lisbon.
