Webinar
Waste & Circular Economy

From a linear to a circular city – how to get started?

14 May 2019, 09:30 - 11:00

Registration is now open for the International Urban Cooperation programme (IUC)’s fifth webinar in its sustainable urban development series, which will take place on 14 May from 9:30-11:00 CEST.

This webinar will feature international speakers, and will focus on how cities can improve waste management and shift to a circular economy.

Globally, cities produce 75 percent of greenhouse gas emissions and 50 percent of waste, while consuming 60–80 percent of our natural resources. This makes urban areas uniquely positioned to play a crucial role in influencing the reuse, recycling, recovery and upgrading of waste.

Many cities around the world are currently transitioning from the linear waste model of 'taking-making-disposing' to a circular model. To do so, it is necessary for cities to improve waste streams and prevent resources from becoming waste in the first place.

This webinar will explore challenges and best practices in the field, providing inspiration on how to make your city more circular.
