Cities and regions getting ahead with the circular transition

This session will feature several interactive roundtables on how EU cities and regions can get the governance and finance right for the circular transition. This will connect like-minded cities, regions and partners to exchange experiences and lessons learned on the way to a circular economy. It will also introduce the main advisory and support activities offered in the Circular Cities and Regions Initiative (CCRI) framework – including the EIB’s Circular City Centre (C3) initiative and OECD’s support to CCRI Fellows. It will also propose a matchmaking session for city and region representatives to make connections with potential partners.

Organisers: European Commission, European Investment Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
