On May 14th, Make Mothers Matter celebrated the International Day of Families by hosting a seminar highlighting the importance of engaging mothers and families as changemakers for sustainable development.
Policymakers, researchers, civil society representatives and other circular economy practitioners gathered at the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels to discuss how to accelerate the transition to a circular economy through good practices.
The event was organised by the EU Delegation of Make Mothers Matter in partnership with the European Economic and Social Committee and was live-streamed.
