Is circular economy the future of our regions?

DATE: 13.10.2020

HOUR: 09.30 am – 11.00 am


ORGANIZER: European Committee of the Regions

There’s a world of opportunity to rethink and redesign the way we make, take and dispose of products in a spatial context. Re-thinking production, consumption and waste processes is fundamental for territorial development and the move towards a circular process. There is an urgent need for a change in perspective on the way our economy works and should work in terms of product design, energy use, waste streams and taxing labour. More than ever we need collaboration between stakeholders, regions and urban and rural areas. The perspective of a circular economy raises the question as to whether, with creativity and innovation, we can build a restorative economy to foster a more sustainable development.

This session will be chaired by Sébastien Boudin.
