Policy Panel: Circular Economy in Cities

The policy panel Circular Economy in Cities is part of the 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities and Towns, taking place from 30 September to 2 October 2020 in Mannheim, Germany.

A circular economy, like many ideas, may be a simple concept but implementation at a city or regional level can be seen as an overwhelming task. A common vision for what a circular economy looks like at the urban scale can help to make it more manageable particularly when addressing priority sectors such as construction, food, textiles, mobility, plastics and consumer electronics.

Key questions of this event include:

  • What should a circular economy transition look like at the local level and what are the levers for local governments to bring it about?
  • How do you finance a circular economy?
  • What is recommended for implementing a circular economy?
  • How can you get involved through the Circular Cities Declaration?
