RREUSE, the European network of social enterprises active in re-use, repair and recycling, is delighted to invite you to its third annual conference, organised in collaboration with the Spanish social enterprise network AERESS and Traperos de Emaús Navarra.


This unique event will focus on strategies supporting longer lasting products through re-use and repair that create local inclusive jobs, provide green products and services and contribute positively to well-being in our society.



This year’s highlights will include in-depth discussions on the re-use of textiles and waste electronics as well as on legal developments at EU level related to the circular economy and social impact measurement. Gathering social entrepreneurs, local, regional and international policy makers, municipalities and private sector representatives, the event will provide for excellent networking opportunities, a dynamic environment and plenty of positive energy!
