Webinar on Circular Economy in Cities

25 Mar 19

What does a circular economy bring to cities?

By 2050, three quarters of us will live in cities. However, our urban centres are grappling with the effects of our current take-make-waste economy. Under this ‘linear system’, cities consume over 75% of natural resources, produce over 50% of global waste, and emit between 60-80% of greenhouse gases. A circular economy provides the opportunity to rethink how we make and use the things we need, and allows us to explore new ways of ensuring long-term prosperity.

Circular Economy in Cities focuses on opportunities in three key urban systems – buildings, mobility, and products – and looks at how city governments can work to enable a circular economy transition.
