Urban areas host more than 50% of the world population and generate ~80% of GDP globally, contributing significantly to resource consumption and GHGs emissions. Circular economy - especially in the form of a circular urban regeneration - can be a key lever to tackle these challenges.
This is the second in a series of circular economy webinars offered by the JICE that will address topics relevant to the circular transition in the EU. The next webinar will be held during Autumn 2021.
The 7th edition of the October Days for Sustainable Development will take the opportunity to draw lessons from the present crisis and provide possible outlook scenarios, acknowledging that nothing is set in stone – that the paths are for us to choose – but also acknowledging that there will not and cannot be a “return to normal” as we know it.
