EUROCITIES Discuss Circular Economy in Ljubljana

The EUROCITIES 2017 Annual Conference was hosted in Ljubljana between 15 and 17 November. Around 700 delegates, including decision makers and politicians, gathered in the city to discuss circular economy, a field in which, according to Daniël Termont, President of EUROCITIES and Mayor of Gent, cities show more ambition than countries.

A presentation on the role of circular economy in the resource story and the cities by Janez Potočnik, former European Commissioner for Environment, was followed by round tables where participants were discussing society, partnerships, economy and further growth according to circular principles.

Within the framework of the EUROCITIES conference the official award ceremony for best practices in circular economy was held. Munich’s Halle 2 won in the Cooperation category; in the Innovation Category, Brussels with the ‘Be Circular, Be Brussels’ innovative won; the Participation Category’s award went to Gothenburg for its »smart map« project.
