From vision to reality: Cities & regions drive forward Europe’s circular transition

8 November 2023, 09:00-18:00 The Circular Cities and Regions Initiative (CCRI) is holding its 1st General Conference on 8 November 2023 in Brussels and online.

Organised by the European Commission, this Conference will provide a forum for all interested circular economy stakeholders to come together to discuss and exchange on circular solutions at the local and regional scale.

The Conference will be an occasion to get inspired by other EU cities and regions and exchange with relevant stakeholders. It will explore themes such as coupling circularity with climate and environmental challenges, financing the circular economy and engaging with stakeholders, as well as how the CCRI can support the circular economy in collaboration with CCRI Projects and Associated Partners.

This event will provide a unique opportunity for policymakers, business leaders and circular economy experts from across Europe to:

  • Explore concrete ways of translating circular visions into reality in cities and regions;
  • Share relevant information for policy-makers implementing circular economy actions on local and regional scales;
  • Learn from experts’ insights on the benefits of a circular economy at the local/regional level.
