The third Dresden Nexus Conference, now in a virtual format, will take place on the 3 – 5 of June 2020 under the theme “Circular Economy in a Sustainable Society”.

DNC2020 aims to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable economy by focusing on identifying and discussing the concepts that nexus thinking offers to support the transition towards a circular economy. A detailed description of the thematic scope can be found in the Concept Note.

The Organisers have now adapted the diverse programme and identified programme elements that will be offered in new digital formats. High-level keynote speakers will be sharing their insights and engage in live Q&A sessions. Sessions with contributions from international experts will provide a more in-depth look at nexus-oriented strategies for achieving sustainable development. International experts will give their views on “Policy and Circular Economy developments in their respective country”.

Additionally, poster and poster presentation can be accessed via the conference website.
