PlastiCircle and ICLEI Europe to host ‘Circular Cities’ conference

5 February 2019

On 16 May, PlastiCircle and ICLEI Europe will host a special conference in Brussels on the circularity of plastics in Europe’s urban environments.

The collaboration between ICLEI Europe and the PlastiCircle project will gather EU policy makers, cities, industry and civil society for a full-day interactive conference at Scotland House – in the heart of Brussels’ EU quarter.

‘Circular Cities – Innovating to tackle plastic waste’ will look at the key questions of the day: the future of plastics in Europe, the potential for turning waste into resource, what EU policies on plastics mean for cities, businesses and consumers, and the role of innovation in bringing circularity to urban Europe.

The conference will bring policy makers, cities and innovators together with three plenary panel sessions and a series of parallel workshops on plastic packaging innovations, digitalisation for a circular economy and circularity in cities. The conference will also feature a lunch-time ‘Innovation Space’ – a great way for stakeholders to network and meet with multiple organisations doing work in these areas.

Further information and registration forms will be posted soon on the PlastiCircle website, the ICLEI Europe website, and via Twitter and LinkedIn.
