Call to Rethink

The inaugural Circular Cities Summit 1.0 themed “Game-Changing Innovations for Future Cities” would focus on exploring innovative solutions and strategies for achieving sustainability and circularity in the built environment. The pursuit of circular cities is seen as a crucial step towards achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal 11, which aims to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable.

What is a Circular City?

A circular city is a city designed to function in a circular economy, which is an economic system aimed at minimizing waste and making the most of resources. In a circular city, resources are used and managed in a way that is sustainable and regenerative, and waste is minimized through reuse, recycling, and other forms of resource recovery.

Circular cities are designed with a focus on sustainability and resilience, and they typically incorporate elements such as green spaces, public transportation, renewable energy sources, and smart technology to optimize resource use and reduce waste. Circular city planning also takes into account the social and economic needs of the community, with a focus on creating a livable and equitable urban environment for all residents.

Summit Discussion Topics

  • Circular design principles and strategies for buildings and landscapes
  • Emerging technologies and innovative solutions for sustainable construction and maintenance
  • Circular material use and resource efficiency in buildings and landscapes
