Why a Circular City Week

Circular economy is a global mega trend, with the potential to transform industries and redesign urban living. The transformative potential of circularity is not specific to a single sector, but can be linked to everything from digitization and the sharing economy, to the food industry and the built environment.


Circular City Week wants to give everyone a platform for knowledge sharing, no matter whether you approach circularity from a design perspective, an environmental awareness standpoint, as an growth agenda, or as a mean to rethinking consumerism. 

The aim of the week is to inspire industry professionals across sectors, showcase international pioneers, highlight local change makers and engage students to be the future of circularity.  

Circular City Week also intends to be an engaging festival, where activities are diverse and fun. Previous Circular City Week activities included a book release, conferences, an art exhibition, Lunch & Learns,  a film screening, a family play-shop, tours, a pitch competition, site visits  and workshops.

What is Circular Economy?

Why a circular economy now?

The rapid increase in population growth, coupled with an ever-expanding middle class has placed the planet’s limited resources under strain. As the world industrialized, we adopted linear production and consumption models. As a response to these challenges, and in recognition that the current situation is unsustainable, a new economic model is necessary.
