How to Scale up Circular Cities

  • In developing country cities we will explore the scope for regulations to shape government-driven actions such as waste management, involving both the formal and informal sectors.
  • We will examine the role for value-chains which stretch beyond city limits, where urban policy can combine with a regional approach.
  • Actions from businesses are essential. Local entrepreneurs have the guts and imagination to take risks, invest, accelerate change and are responsible for the largest part of scaling up the circular economy in cities.
  • We will discuss how to create a circular culture of meaningful participation for citizens and residents, to stimulate the engagement of different stakeholders for the circular transition.
  • Researchers and knowledge institutes can develop new insights and tools, validate ideas and boost awareness. Educating the leaders, and consumers, of the future is another essential step, while making sure no-one gets left behind.
