Seminar “The City as a Businessmodel”

The essence of this seminar is how to address the challenges of integrating sustainability, circularity, and social inclusivity in the urban environment. The focus will be on concepts that generate multiple values for various stakeholders and thus offer the foundation for creating a sustainable and inclusive urban circular economy.

During the day, a number of parallel sessions are scheduled in which various approaches, tools and challenges towards sustainable, inclusive circular cities are presented and discussed, based on a carefully selected set of European projects and programmes. The program is complemented by three keynotes from the City of Nijmegen, the OECD and the City of Amsterdam.
