Achieving the transition to a circular economy is not a trivial task; it requires the active involvement of society as a whole in the transformation of production, consumption, waste management, infrastructure, policies and regulations, etc. How to consider the significance of social inclusion in the realization of a circular economy? How are urban waste management systems being transformed toward inclusiveness and circularity? How do these transformations relate to area-based development and infrastructure management, and how do they manifest themselves in different cultural and geographical contexts?

During this event, members of the Inclusive Wise Waste Cities (IWWCs) project both from China and the Netherlands will be touching upon these points, sharing their recent research findings, and followed by presentations with practical examples and initiatives from the Almere Upcycling Center and PRICE in Flevoland. The event will also offer a workshop where participants will be able to share their viewpoints on topics around circularity, inclusion, and resilience in waste management. The event will close with a brief drink to facilitate networking and pave the way for identifying future synergies.

IWWCs is grateful for the financial support of the Dutch Research Council and the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
