The transition to a circular economy entails a systemic transformation of entire value chains, covering design, production and consumption phases. Cities and regions are hubs of innovation and socio-economic transformation with a great potential to lead the transition to a circular economy. Yet, such a deep transformation often requires supporting mechanisms to make it happen.

During the first #EUCircularTalks the topic of monitoring frameworks and the setting of indicators to measure circularity in cities and regions was discussed. Are those indicators (used to measure circularity) matching the validation/assessment criteria of circular economy supporting and funding instruments? Which supporting tools for cities and regions are available? And how are they being used?

ACR+, EIB Advisory Hub, ACR+ member Government of Navarra, Interreg MED Green Growth community, EIT Raw Materials, Dublin city and EUCF invite you on 13 December to this #EUCircularTalks to discuss how different supporting initiatives are being used by cities and regions in their transition towards a circular economy.
