Room 2

Cities are engines of economic growth. They are also voracious consumers of energy and resources, and producers of waste. Recognizing these inherent challenges, a growing movement of government, academics, NGOs, and private sector leaders are exploring circular economy models that would seek to decouple growth and development from the consumption of finite resources. In this session you will hear from leaders at the forefront of this movement as they explore approaches to strategy development, share intel, and discuss challenges for moving toward the circular city.
