Circular Economy in Cities

Policy session within the 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities and Towns - Mannheim2020

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. In this session, the Circular Cities Declaration will be launched.

Key questions in this session include:

What should a circular economy transition will 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?
