Circular economy chat with Frans Timmermans on social media

 
 

On Wednesday July 15 at 16.30 CET, European Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans will hold his second social media live chat. The chat will focus on the circular economy in Europe. The future of the European economy is in the circular economy – in reusing and in putting things back into the economic cycle. This means rethinking the way we design, produce, consume and dispose of products.

The Commission is currently working on preparing a new package of measures and wants to hear your input. The circular economy core project team includes First Vice-President Timmermans, Vice-President Katainen, Commissioner Vella and Commissioner Bieńkowska.

You can ask your questions on the circular economy during this live chat, and we are also looking for ideas on what you think Europe should do to promote the circular economy. We look forward to your participation in the live chat, and your contributions to the public consultation.

Use the hashtag #AskFrans on Facebook and Twitter. We look forward to your questions and comments.

 

"I believe passionately in this because the future of the European economy is not in competing on low wages; the future of the European economy is not in competing on wasting finite resources. The future of the European economy is in the circular economy."
