Becoming circular: tough work and promising results

In 2015, Amsterdam explored opportunities for a circular economy, which have been published in Amsterdam Circular: Vision and Roadmap for City and Region. Dozens of projects have been started, albeit mostly on a small scale and starting from a learning-by-doing perspective. This blogpost focuses on circular building and reveals that significant progress has been made.
Last year, the city deservedly won the World Smart City Award for Circular Economy for its approach – facilitating small-scaled initiatives directed at metropolitan goals.
