IN REGENERATIVE CITIES
Circular economy in urban planning and building permits – possibilities and limitations
The most recent publication from the CIRCuIT project explores the possibilities the four CIRCuIT city administrations – Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki region and London – have for including requirements for circular economy and construction in their urban planning policy instruments and procedures.
Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT) is a collaborative project funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, bringing together 31 ambitious partners across the entire built environment chain in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki Region and Greater London.
The project aims to bridge the implementation gap between theory, practice and policy and showcase how circular construction approaches can be scaled and replicated across Europe, to support the creation of regenerative cities.
