Join the NetWorkshop: Making Circularity a Priority – For Cities and Municipal Utilities on 1 – 2 April 2020 in Osnabrück

All value chains and associated resource flows are collected locally after usage. Due to a lack of circularity, they often become a disposal challenge with low levels of material recovery and recycling. Join us on 1 – 2 April 2020 for a NetWorkshop on Circular Cities/Towns/Villages to learn and discuss potential benefits and transformation strategies.

There is growing optimism about the potential of the ‘circular economy’ as a new model for sustainable growth. In a more circular world, products are recycled, repaired or reused rather than thrown away, and waste from one process becomes an input into other processes. To support a circular transition, cities and their metropolitan regions, as well as towns and villages, are at the right scale to make the shift.

Cities such as Copenhagen are well on their way to successfully combine their green circular transformation with job creation, a growing economy and a better quality of life. However, rethinking and transforming the built environment, local energy systems, urban mobility, urban bio economy and local production and consumption systems require a major collaborative effort by multiple actors. The public sector needs to play its part in making the necessary infrastructure available and formulating policies and regulations that incentivise innovation, including circular public procurement efforts. To learn more, please also check out our Circular Economy Guidebook for Cities.

Together with, and supported by Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU), the CSCP is organizing a 2-day NetWorkshop on Circular Cities>Towns>Villages and municipal companies. The workshop will take place on 1 and 2 April 2020 at the DBU premises in Osnabrück. It will aim to Inspire and encourage decision-makers in Germany to take an active part in the circular transformation, as well as facilitate networking and the development of action platforms.
