The Circular Economy European Summit will take place from 15th to 17th November 2016 in the city of Barcelona. The first edition of this event will be incorporated within the celebration of the Smart City Expo World Congress, the European Utility Week and Iwater. The event can therefore, be considered as a key week in the future sustainable development of the city and society as a whole.
Three major topics will be addressed by the event over the three days. First, the organisers will talk about the industry as a transforming axis of the current economic model before covering urban circular systems that re-build the economy, ecology and citizens' wealth. To do this, hundreds of experts who have previously held conferences and seminars will offer practical workshops to participants.
The seminars will also lead to creating relationships between clients, entrepreneurs, investors, corporations and delegates in order to find and solve a number of common problems in their lines of work. The new model will lead to a progressive step that will also foster and create new business opportunities. In fact, a lot of companies will be part of the committee that organises the event.
Reflecting and debating will be the main aspects on which the programme of activities at the Circular Economy Barcelona European Summit will consist of. In fact, most of the discussions and debates that will occur at this event will revolve around the use of technology to manage the various resources of cities, the design of circular cities as well as the role to be played by public institutions when creating effective systems and the necessary funding to allow this transition.
In addition, finding new business opportunities for small municipalities, the power issue in large cities, the necessary innovation in the SME sector and inclusive economy will all be the other major topics to be covered at this congress. All this, of course, on the assumption that the circular economy can be a key element in achieving the objectives.
The Circular Economy Barcelona European Summit 2016 will be one of November's most important events in Barcelona. In addition, it will take place during a week in which all eyes from around the world will focus on the various events related to the concept of 'smart city' that will occur there. These dates are, without a doubt, very important for many cities to mark their short-term and long-term future.
