The International Cradle to Cradle Congress enters the fifth round!

September 14. & 15. 2018

The Cradle to Cradle Congress is the world’s largest platform for Cradle to Cradle – every year the C2C community meets decision-makers from economy, science, politics and society. Forums, speeches and expert discussions provide space for exchange and networking.

Our actors contribute to the development of alternative approaches and therefore enhance the idea of a positive footprint. As part of the Congress some companies present their products and illustrate the possibilities within the scope of C2C and their practical implementation.

We speak English!

We are making the Congress accessible to international guests by offering simultaneous translation of all contributions live on site!

100 volunteers

Assistance and advice: more than 100 on-site volunteers make the Congress possible. Their commitment ensures a smooth event and happy participants.

C2C printing process

Thanks to the C2C printing process the NÄHRSTOFF magazine featuring the Congress programme as well as our flyers are healthy for people and the environment. We want to leave behind a positive footprint for our readers and in our environment!


Bringing kids to the Congress? No problem: we provide professional childcare to enable parents to participate in the Congress.

Vegetarian, organic and regional

All meals offered during the Congress are vegetarian. The ingredients are sourced from local, organic farms. Bon appétit!

Online publication 

We want everyone to be able to take part in our C2C Congress! That’s why all Congress contributions are filmed and made available restriction-free on the internet. It allows us to reach people who would otherwise be unable to participate due to financial or scheduling reasons!

C2C textiles 

You can’t miss our helpers in their healthy and compostable blue C2C shirts!

Saisonal & Fair

Replenish your energy between events with fresh seasonal fruit and organic pastries. Enjoy fairly and organically produced coffees, teas and juices with it during the whole Congress.

Refillable bottles

Has all the interaction, debate and networking at the Congress made you thirsty? Dont’ worry: we provide all participants with a refillable bottle that can be used at our water bar to quench your thirst.

Public transport

Bus connections between the station and the venue motivate particpants to travel to the Congress using public local and long-distance transport.
