Towards Net-Zero through a Circular Economy: the consumer and business perspectives

When:Tu 17-09-2024 13:00 - 15:30
Where:House of Connections

The CircEUlar project team is delighted to announce an opportunity to hear about its latest research and contribute to shaping the next phases of work. A stakeholder workshop will take place on Tuesday 17 September, after lunch, from 13:00 at the House of Connections in Groningen, The Netherlands. 

CircEUlar is a Horizon Europe funded project at the cutting edge of research on how to integrate circular pathways in the low-carbon transition. It aims to improve scenario modelling and better contribute to the debates on climate, energy and circular economy policy. 

This workshop will address research insights from both a consumer and business perspective. We will explore what circularity means for mobility, living practices, household appliances, waste management, and business behaviours. Stakeholders from across industry, local government, and civil society will inform the research scope and contribute to the development of a toolkit for businesses to support further uptake of circular practices. 

Going forward, the stakeholder community will be further developed as a forum to present, discuss, and strengthen project outputs in an endeavour to co-create a shared vision for a European net-zero Circular Economy.
