Cradle to Cradle Congress
31 January – 1 February 2020
The Cradle to Cradle e.V. has set itself the task of raising awareness of the approach to circular economy, as developed by Michael Braungart and William McDonough, to the status of social consensus. To this end, the association has been organising an annual congress since 2014. In 2020, various figures will be on stage such as the theologian and Denmark’s former Minister of the Environment Ida Auken, presenter and actress Nina Eichinger, Michael Braungart, or Sabine Nallinger, chairwoman of Foundation 2 Degrees – German Businesses for Climate Protection. In addition to topics such as architecture, textiles, and digitisation, the topic of food will be at the centre of the discussion this year. The organisers are also focusing on sustainability in all areas – the catering is vegetarian, regional and organic, drinking bottles are refillable, information brochures are printed in a recyclable format, and the helpers’ t-shirts are compostable. Tickets cost 99 euros for private individuals.
