Unlocking circularity for cities

Cities have for centuries been a major attraction for people. The United Nations estimate that by 2030 about five billion people will live in cities, and by 2050 two thirds of the global population will live in urban areas (UNDESA, 2012). Cities are places of opportunity – a better life, greater economic and entrepreneurial opportunities, and higher concentration of food and people.

Objectives

Cities can be key players in rolling out circular models, reducing the use of resources and raw materials. This one-day event aims to identify the key challenges and opportunities in policy, technology and business models to unlock circularity for cities.

Who should attend?

This event is intended for policymakers, cities and businesses that aim to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy through circular economics. It will be a great opportunity to learn more from key stakeholders working in the field, through sharing best practice on policy, technology and business models. 

Registration

The Circular Cities one-day event will take place at the EIT House in Brussels on 26 September 2018.

Please register individually for this event. Places are limited and registration is required.
