Cities and regions accelerating the circular transition

The role of cities and regions in the transition to the circular economy – as cradles, catalysts and circular change makers. 

Time: Thursday 1 June at 10.00–11.30 EEST (UTC+3)
Place: European Commission Representation Office in Finland, Malminkatu 16, Helsinki 

Cities and regions may ask why they should strive to be circular, how they can start and progress in their circular journey, what benefit this will bring and who can support them. This session will provide the answers to all these questions, with cities and regions sharing inspirational examples and experiences. 

Organisers: European Commission, DG Research and innovation and European Investment Bank
