Supported by the Green Deal, circularity policies and strategies are emerging across Europe. This online session offered insight into the implementation challenges when delivering circular strategies in cities and regions. In particular, it outlined the spatial implications, explore questions around governance and policy levers, and delved into how to bring about societal shifts and how to measure the impact of these changes. It also involved discussions on the potential of circularity as a driver for sustainable transitions.

Professor Jo Williams was joined by Karel Van Den Berghe, Wendy Wuyts and Fedra Vanhuyse to present the policy suggestions generated from the research conducted for the RSA PolicyExpo 2021, Going circular: unlocking the potential of regions and cities to drive the circular economy transition.
