This EU Circular Talk on 8 December will focus on the role of network governance; building a coalition of partners willing to contribute to transformational changes will promote the implementation of circular economy roadmaps at national and local levels. One of the main objectives of the session is to present and discuss the role of transition brokers in accelerating circular initiatives.
These intermediaries (also hub leaders) coordinate the circular transition with different actors (such as industry, local governments, research and educational institutes and civil society). Transition brokers can fulfil various functions in setting up network governance, from helping build circular initiatives to upscaling them by linking successful local case studies to national policy and agenda setting.
This event is an Accelerator Session at the World Circular Economy Forum 2022.
