Webinar: Become a CityLoops replicator to make your city circular
28 Jan 2021, 15:00-16:30
Is your city looking to build the foundations for circularity, to transform your construction and demolition waste stream into a circular flow of materials, or looking to valorise and reuse your biowaste at a high value? Become part of CityLoops! Join as a CityLoops Replicator to benefit from funded study visits, direct exchange with the cities involved in the project, and tailored peer-to-peer workshops.
If you are interested, you can take part in our introductory webinar on January 28, 15h – 16h30 CET, where you will learn more about the activities in CityLoops and the ways in which Replicators will be involved in the project. Register here.

The CityLoops project brings together seven European cities – Apeldoorn, Bodø, Mikkeli, Porto, Seville, Høje-Taastrup and Roskilde - to pilot a series of demonstration actions to close the loop of two of the most important waste streams in Europe: Construction and Demolition Waste, and Biowaste. The cities will implement ten demonstration actions and test over 30 new tools and processes as part of CityLoops. Their ultimate aim is to become circular cities in which no resource goes to waste, driving the transition to the circular economy.
