The Circular Economy Mapping Week reached 67 cities! 

PRESS RELEASE: 14 February 2018

The Circular Economy has been gaining immense traction among entrepreneurs, academics and scholars all over the world. The Circular Economy Club (CEC) believes in bringing the community of circular economy professionals together in order to solve the challenges found when implementing a circular economy.

One of the challenges in implementing the framework is the need for more practical examples, to better understand what is working and what is not. Therefore, the Mapping Week exists to gather as many examples as possible in an open online directory.

During the Circular Economy Mapping Week, 5-11 February 2018, CEC Organizers voluntarily set up group sessions to map the circular initiatives in their cities. Workshops took place in 67 cities, including Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Madrid, New York, London, Rio de Janeiro, Singapore and Taipei.

The Mapping Week had two objectives:

  1. To bring together circular enthusiasts to discuss and learn about the latest circular initiatives happening in their cities; and
  2. To map out circular initiatives taking place globally and make this information available online and free for all.

If we all map our cities, together we can map the world. The Mapping Week helped us all understand what is currently being done, what works and what else needs to be implemented to grow the circular framework.
