In this session of Re-think Webinars we will discuss the main circular economy initiatives and projects developed by the city of Lisbon. Francesco Castellano, Founder & President of Tondo, will talk about different approaches and metrics to measure circularity at the city level for different uses. Measuring circularity can really help monitoring and improving value chain performances as well as improving sorting methods of the material flows.
In the second part of the webinar Andreia Barbosa, the co-founder of Circular Economy Portugal (CEP), will explain the main circular economy initiatives carried out in recent years by CEP in Lisbon. Circular Economy Portugal is an environmental NGO which aims to accelerate the transition to a circular economy based on sustainable production and consumption. CEP has been sharing knowledge and raising awareness about the concept of circular economy since 2017. It develops and implements demonstration projects, from (electronics) repair to (textiles) upcycling and composting, and it is also a network of circular pioneers – social enterprises creating value for society and the environment.
