Circular City Week

Project 2022 Active

Circular City Week is an open collaborative festival for circular economy related events. For the fourth time, Circular City Week will take place in New York from 2-8 May 2022. Activities during Circular City Week emphasize how circular practices such as reuse, recycling, and upcycling are transforming urban industries and the city as a whole.

Circular City Week is the largest circular economy event in the US engaging New Yorkers and beyond in a multi stakeholder dialogue spurring action towards a circular economy. The week is meant to inspire and raise awareness to current best practices and initiatives across sectors and industries. By showcasing how circular approaches can influence city life and change urban industries, Circular City Week is a vehicle for lasting and meaningful change.

A Practical Approach to Circular Market Transition

On May 5, Nordic Innovation and Nordic Circular Hotspot will host a session on circular market transition.

At this event, you have the opportunity to learn about how the Nordic businesses are making pathways to implementing a circular economy in the region. 

The event will showcase the importance of building Nordic and North American networks of circular frontrunners, innovators and investors and applying regenerative solutions. There is an urgent need for new knowledge and promising practices when it comes to regenerative business models and financing the circular transition.
