The European Circular Cities Declaration is designed to help accelerate the transition from a linear to a circular economy in Europe, and thereby create a resource-efficient, low-carbon and socially responsible society.
It aims to:
- Allow local and regional governments across Europe to communicate their commitment to supporting the circular transition
- Provide a shared vision of what a “circular city” is
- Underline the critical role which local and regional governments need to play in making this transition happen
- Establish a network of committed organisations to share their experiences, challenges and successes
The Declaration has been developed by a broad partnership of stakeholders to ensure that the vision and commitments contained are ambitious, yet achievable, and reflect the needs of all.
