Social Media Specialist

What we do

The Circular Economy Club (CEC) is the international group of over 4,600 circular economy professionals in over 130 countries. CEC’s activity is non-profit, run by volunteers and although it started in London, there are team members based globally. CEC organises events to foster the exchange of knowledge, synergies and collaboration amongst the circular economy community.

CEC Barcelona is the local chapter of CEC in Barcelona.

The concept of the circular economy is grounded in the study of non-linear, feedback-rich systems. The circular economy may be the biggest revolution in the global economy in 250 years as it challenges companies and societies to rethink the current models and relationships. A circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design, and aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value at all times.
