Night of Circular Solutions

Organisers: Sitra & Helsinki Think Company
Date & Time: Tuesday 6 June at 18:00-06/09:00
Location: Helsinki City Centre and Allas sea pool

Registration: through here by 26.5.2017 (max. 100 participants)

Description: The Night of Circular Solutions is an intensive one night adventure, where participants from academia and business take their how into action June 6th 6PM to 6AM. During the night, multidisciplinary teams will develop concrete solutions to current and actual circular economy issues. The Night is all about building multidisciplinary boundary-breaking new enterprises in addition to sprouting starting points for scientific publications.

This night is organised parallel to the World Circular Economy Forum in Helsinki, from which the inspiration for this side event’s theme is drawn. The multidisciplinary teams will take up one of the four challenges provided and spend the night working on solutions. The themes which we will be working on are alternative protein sources, built environments and circular economy in developing countries.

The Night will consist of problem solving and verifying developed ideas with facilitated assistance. The teams will be taken on an adventure across the beautiful centre of Helsinki, all ending in a spectacular final where the fine-tuned solutions will be presented. After a hard-working night and the crowning final at dawn, the morning continues with a chill-out seaside celebration to end the eventful night. This Night adventure for 100 participants is open to people interested in sustainability and circular economy. Sign up to join us in putting ideas into action!
