Circular City Challenge – The search for innovative solutions for urban transformation to a Circular Economy
Cities play a crucial role in shaping the future of our world. As we consider how we will live in the future, cities carry a significant responsibility. By 2050, two out of three people will live in urban areas – currently, cities are already responsible for 70% of greenhouse gas emissions and 50% of the world's waste. The transition to a Circular Economy is key to helping cities achieve their climate goals and ensure a sustainable future.
Circular Berlin, Circular Munich, Circonnact, Materialkreislauf, Circular Black Forest, Creative Climate Cities, and Fab City Hamburg have joined forces to launch the Circular City Challenge 2023. This initiative, supported by Stuttgarter Klima-Innovationsfonds, aims to drive the transformation towards a sustainable urban system. The cities of Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Vienna, Hamburg, Leipzig, and the municipalities of Zeuthen and Ringsheim, and Kreis Lippe will collaborate in the search for innovative solutions in the field of the circular economy. City representatives will support innovators in adapting their solutions to local needs.
Until 01.10.2023, companies and organizations with innovative Circular Economy solutions can submit their applications. On 23.11.2023, the shortlisted initiatives will be announced, and they will have the opportunity to present their concepts to the jury.
At www.circular-city-challenge.com we invite all innovators working on a circular solution to apply for the Circular City Challenge. Explore the challenges posed by our municipal partners and be part of the search for innovative solutions towards urban transformation to the Circular Economy.
WISTA Management GmbH is looking forward to being part of the jury.
