Circular Economy is one of the 14 themes for the Urban Agenda for the EU partnerships established as part of the Pact of Amsterdam. Several of the partnerships have developed actions to reduce barriers for a transition towards a circular economy in cities, among them the Circular Economy Partnership and the Partnership for Sustainable Use of Land & Nature-Based Solutions. To develop a strategy for Circular Economy in cities is an opportunity for cities to develop a sustainable, smart and inclusive city for the citizens. A Circular Economy strategy is based on the local situation in the city. ESPON EGTC will present and discuss the results of 2 projects aiming to support regions and cities in the transition to a circular economy.
To have more information about the Urban Agenda Partnership on Circular Economy please have a look at the Futurium Website where you will find updates and the Action Plan of the partnership.
