The Forum will examine enabling factors and challenges of transitioning to a circular economy model in an urban context. These will be presented through the lens of the stakeholders: city authorities, citizens and businesses. The event will also identify and showcase eco-innovations that can facilitate the shift to a circular economy and support cities in meeting the new targets for municipal waste treatment. It will take place during the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology, Hannover Messe (which will be held from 7 to 11 April 2014).
The Forum will be accompanied by parallel events: EMAS meetings/Awards ceremony and ETV Stakeholder Forum and ETV handing-out of the Statements of Verification.
