KICK-OFF EVENT

Calling innovators, businesses and experts within circular construction!


In an upcoming challenge contest, we will target the massive waste overload we are suffering in Denmark and internationally. We will seek to find new transformative and innovative solutions in the built environment, focusing on the recycling and upcycling of waste.

You can join us for the kick-off event for Circular Construction Challenge - Rethink Waste. We will launch the Challenge Call, explain the one-year process and speakers will share international experiences with both challenge processes and the specific challenge theme.

This is a don’t-miss experience if you consider to join the Challenge and go for the winner prize. The kick-off event will run from 2 PM - 4 PM in BLOX - Denmark’s world of architecture, design and new ideas - in the heart of Copenhagen.

Before and after the kick-off event we have arranged some side events for you to attend. If you want to get going with your own company’s circular transition or want to get the most updated brush-up on rules and regulations - leading experts host specialized workshops in the morning. And after the kick-off event, we invite you all to a glass in the afternoon sun at BLOX’s terrace - to network and hear about a brand new book by Lendager Group.

This will all take place in BLOX and it’s free to participate. Sign up is required and seats are limited for the workshop sessions.
