"Circular economy and climate: new uses, new economy": a conference "The World Cities" in Orleans


How to put the circular economy into practice, in the life of citizens as in the construction of the city? "The World Cities" questions, in a conference on Wednesday, November 27 from 8:30 to 10:30 in Orleans.

Extract, manufacture, consume, throw: the circular economy wants to break with this linear model. To accelerate this transition, a bill, currently under discussion in Parliament, intends to mobilize and empower producers.

But the circular economy is not just about waste. The transition also involves sobriety (fight against food waste, rehabilitation of buildings ...), the substitution of finite resources by renewables and the avoidance of waste (lengthening the period of use, repair, reuse ...).

How to mobilize citizens, transform habits and uses? How, in terms of urban planning, change practices, move from destruction to deconstruction, promote the reuse of materials?

These questions will be at the heart of the debates organized by "Le Monde Cities" on Wednesday, November 27, from 8:30 to 10:30, at the greenhouse of the Jardin des Plantes, Place des Jardin des Plantes, Orleans (Loiret).
