- Circular economy
- Waste prevention
Main policy issue to be addressed in relation to the selected topics
Have you already been involved in an URBACT network?
The projects builds on already established work by the Urban Agenda Partnership on Circular Economy, where the partnership have worked to collect best practices from european cities on how to address waste prevention, re-use and circular consumption in European cities today.
To be able to take the Partnerships work forward, we hope to establish a URBACT Action Planning Network, inviting in new cities to investigate these challenges with us. We are specifically looking for cities from less developed countries and cities with ambitions to work with circular economy on the local level. This project would be an unique opportunity to get more knowledge on the topic of Circular Economy, which is a stated priority by the European Commission and will be in focus for the next generation of ERDF.
