New Economies Changing Cities and Regions

Tuesday, 14
10:15 - 11:15
Gran Via, Hall 2, Congress Area - Room 5

In a world of limited resources, new economic paradigms are needed. Business models based on circularity, such as circular supplies, resource recovery, product life extension, sharing platforms and product as a service are gaining ground. How can cities and regions get away from the ‘take, make, dispose’ model and capture the full potential of Circular Economy? How can this way of doing business turn into the new normal in the 21st century?
