Training for Circular Economy in the Construction and Furniture Sectors

EUROCITIES 2017 Conference – Ljubljana, Slovenia, 15-17 November

Cities are responsible for implementing national and EU recycling targets and can play a crucial role in stimulating behavioural change relating to consumption patterns. As procurers of goods and services we can guide decisions towards more circular choices, and build local partnerships with businesses moving towards circular production models. How can we strive to become circular cities and support the UN sustainable development goal of ‘ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns’?
EUROCITIES is the network of major European cities, was founded in 1986 by the mayors of six large cities: Barcelona, Birmingham, Frankfurt, Lyon, Milan and Rotterdam. Today, they bring together the local governments of over 130 of Europe’s largest cities and 40 partner cities, that between them govern 130 million citizens across 35 countries.
Through six thematic forums, a wide range of working groups, projects, activities and events, we offer members a platform for sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas. They influence and work with the EU institutions to respond to common issues that affect the day-to-day lives of Europeans.
