16may18:0022:00Towards a Circular Economy in our City18:00 - 22:00

Event Details

In the light of an increasing global population, depleting natural resources and a strong urbanization trend, the pressure on cities to take action for a circular economy is growing. Key ingredients to make this happen include technological innovations, access to data, enabling policies and proper incentives.

How are local governments tackling the challenge and are there any learnings to be made from the Chinese approach? What solutions already exist and how can you take action? With this event, the Global Shapers and the GreenTech Hub invite policymakers, municipalities, corporates and startups, to a dialogue on how to shape a circular economy in our city. Join the conversation and let’s get circular!
