The capital of Belgium is the next stop in our roundup of events we media partner with. This month’s Circular Cities conference in Brussels is focused on ‘innovating to tackle plastic waste’ – and you can follow all the discussion on 16 May on social media.

What is the Circular Cities conference?

PlastiCircle and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability will host a special conference on the circularity of plastics in European cities. The conference – through panel sessions and interactive parallel workshops – will gather multiple stakeholders to assess the challenge of a circular economy for plastics, and the innovations which aim to tackle plastic waste in Europe’s urban areas. The event welcomes policy makers at national and EU levels, cities, civil society, business, Horizon 2020 projects and academia, all sharing solutions and networking for better mutual understanding of the challenges of the day.
