Free Webinar instead of NetWorkshop Circular Cities > Town > Villages and Municipal Utilities

13.00 - 14.30

We regret to inform you that with growing health concerns and travel restrictions – among speakers and experts as well as participants – we have decided to postpone the “NetWorkshop Circular Cities > Town > Villages and Municipal Utilities” originally scheduled for 01 & 02 April, 2020. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.

Together with the Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP) we have put together an exciting and stimulating programme. It is our intention to honour all the hard work that went into this by finding alternative ways to deliver Circular Economy insights and support municipalities in exploring their role as circular change agents.

All challenging situations offer opportunities for innovation and we are exploring new ways of sparking the discussion. As a first step, a selected group of keynote speakers agreed to share their expertise and insights during a 90 min webinar, that will take place during the originally planned start of the NetWorkshop.

Please join us for an insightful session helping us to understand the relevance of the topic, the role and initiatives of European regulation as well as concrete opportunities and challenges that municipalities may face when “going circular”.
