The next EUROCITIES Environment Forum meeting will take place in Amsterdam from 4 to 6 April 2018, on the theme of ‘Towards circular cities: how to make it work’.

The forum will be an opportunity to look into Amsterdam’s progress in achieving circular economy and see how cities can better integrate topics such as waste or energy in their urban development. Local politicians will be invited to reflect together with the business sectors, European Institutions representatives and financial institutions on how to make circular economy working locally.

Participants will have the possibility to exchange best practices through roundtables and speed networking sessions, as well as attending site visits touching on several aspects of the circular economy transition.

Working groups Air Quality, Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, Green Areas and Biodiversity, Water, Waste* will meet on 4th April. We also count with the presence of the EUROCITIES members of working group Food.

For this forum edition, on the 3rd of April, an afternoon session will be dedicate to the updates of the Urban Agenda Partnership on Energy Transition and the Urban Agenda Partnership on Air Quality, as well as on the EUROCITIES Climate work, in order to discuss the role cities can play in the roadmap to the next COP24 in Katowice.
