SW5 – Digital tools to get started with circularity

SW5 - Digital tools to get started with circularity

For cities, a circular economy offers great benefits, ranging from reduced greenhouse gas emissions, lower waste management costs, to new livelihood opportunities and local value creation.

Yet planning for the circular economy at the local level is a complex process, bringing together different sectors and addressing impacts beyond jurisdictions and city departments. As a local government, it can be difficult to know how to apply circular economy principles to different value chains, beyond waste management.

This session will introduce different online tools of the Circle Lab for Cities program and the ICLEI Circulars Platform which can be used by local governments to plan and implement circular approaches to achieve their strategic goals, whether they are just beginning to work with circular principles or already have a structured approach.
