Attendees will also have the opportunity to listen to a panel discussion with key stakeholders and policy-makers exploring the role of EU policy in scaling and developing circular training programmes.
The 2022 Circular Cities Declaration Report is a very important milestone. Not only is it the first progress report for the European Circular Cities Declaration, it also features statements from 40 signatory cities. This makes it the broadest ever assessment of circular economy practices across European cities.
