Breakfast with Alexandre Lemille 2nd Nov.: Adding a Circular Humansphere to attain SDGs faster


Our colleague, Alexandre Lemille is globally recognised for his Circular Economy 2.0 concept. Alexandre will be visiting Finland and we decided to organise a gathering to introduce his concept and share his ideas on the topic of: Adding a Circular Humansphere to attain SDGs faster (SDG=UN Sustainable Development Goals). After Alex’s presentation we will have a discussion on the social aspects of the circular economy and how municipalities and cities can harness these aspects in their own work when working on strategy and action plans.

The event is primarily targeted at public sector decision-makers. If you’re interested in attending, please send email to:

The event will be held in English.

Alexandre LeMille bio

Involved with the Circular Economy since 2011, Alexandre has suggested a human-embedded version of Circular Economy: A Circular Economy 2.0 (2014). Alexandre was then recognized by the World Economic Forum as “Highly Commended” in the Circular Economy Leadership category (The Circulars 2016). In 2017 his proposal of Optimizing Circular Value (#OCV) was highlighted by the Chatham House UK as an outcome-based measurement and valorisation tool focusing on “whether a person’s needs have been addressed rather than measuring a product circularity per se”. In 2018, he was listed as “Top 25” innovative person by ChangeHackers for his Circular Humansphere.

Alexandre is the co-founder of the African Circular Economy Network, and is a visiting lecturer at Sciences Po Paris (France) and at the University of Cape Town (South Africa).
