Supporting port professionals, businesses and communities in the transition to a Circular and Low Carbon Economy
Moving from the Why to the How
Bringing together partners from a highly competitive port environment on the basis of their own interests and assets opens up opportunities for collaboration (temporary or otherwise) between the port and the public community. It harnesses the power of self-interest within a shared vision around a defined or recognisable challenge or ‘theme’. By moving from the Why to the How, these themes become meaningful or well enough understood to enable reasonable action.

Circular Flanders is the hub, the inspiration and the matchmaker for the Flemish circular economy.
As a successor to Plan C (2006-2012, 2012-2016) and the Flemish Materials Programme (2011-2016), Circular Flanders was appointed by the Flemish government in 2017 to continue and support the circular economy as a region-wide transition priority.
