The minutes of the Circular Europe Network second workshop, which took place on 28 May, are now available here for all ACR+ members.

During the Workshop, Antoinette Guhl, Deputy-Mayor of Paris city council, presented Paris' vision and strategy regarding circular economy. She highlighted Paris' top priorities, which echo the Circular Europe Network's first working priorities: sustainable building and food waste. These two fields are also part of London's route map towards circular economy as presented by Clare Ollerenshaw, from London Waste and Recycling Board.

These inspiring examples of implementing circular economy in dense areas were completed by two key-note speeches on territorial monitoring. Dr. Márton Herczeg shared the work of the Copenhagen Resource Institute on resource and climate indicators. Then, Marc de Wit presented Circle Economy's work in urban metabolism diagnosis. There presentations were followed by group discussions on choosing the most relevant indicators regarding circular economy and public authorities, and the most feasible for a direct implementation at regional and local levels.

During the meeting, ACR+ presented the first outputs of the Circular Europe Network: general guidelines for circular economy planning for local and regional authorities and a series of factsheets on circular economy planning. The first document aims at clarifying circular economy, its concept and objectives; and presenting circular economy in a practical approach with for example the first steps to take for building a circular economy strategy or which instruments, cross-sector and thematic measures to include.
