Roundtable on Circular Cities

Date: 2021-11-26

Time: 15:00-17:30

Location: IST

By #2050, two-thirds of us will live in #cities. However, our #urban centers are grappling with the effects of our current take-make-waste economy. Under this ‘#linear system’, cities #consume over 75% of #naturalresources, produce over 50% of global #waste, and emit between 60-80% of #greenhousegases. A #circulareconomy 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.
