As the application for the international leadership program in circular economy opened a couple of weeks ago, we are now happy to announce three powerful women who will be the speakers at the first digital meeting within this program.
The leadership program is a collaboration between ReGeneration 2030 and The Swedish Association of Responsible Consumption and consists of a four-block digital education concept. This program aims at uniting young people across the Nordic and Baltic Sea regions to learn about circular economy and empower youth to take action. At the first block of this program, with the theme "Sustainable and Circular Lifestyle", three impactful women within the sustainability sector will be speaking. Below you find a little introduction to each one of them!
