Circular Economy in Cities: A Selection of Case Studies

Circular economy is a fast growing trend in municipalities around the world - but what are municipalities really doing to integrate the concept into their operations? Based on a 5 month intensive research project with my colleagues Patrick Lindner and Heather Rogers, we created a report outlining inspiring projects around the world, along with providing recommendations for municipalities to bring circular economy to their cities.

The report provides a selection of circular economy case studies with the underlying motivation to shed light on how municipalities are implementing circular economy in their cities as a source of inspiration for others. Insight is provided on 16 varying implemented actions, that municipalities have either initiated or supported. The City of Amsterdam is also included in this selection.

You can download the report via the link, or see the published article here: https://www.circulareconomyclub.com/cities-circular-economy-latest-trends-municipal-implementation

Thoughts and feedback always appreciated!

THE TRUE COST is an unprecedented documentary that invites us on an eye-opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes. The film features interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva.

After the screening, Safi Graauw, co-founder of CAVEMEN, will join us to discuss the questions raised in the documentary in further detail. CAVEMEN is an Amsterdam-based creative film production start-up with a unique specialty in combining earth sciences, ethics, and sustainability within the retail industry.
