Rounding the Pillars of the Circular Economy

Post-Carbon Cities of Tomorrow Roundtable Lunch

The roundtable fosters an interactive, informed dialogue between innovators and experts from EU cities and stakeholders and decision makers in the Atlanta community to exchange ideas and insights in areas of shared interests, including urban sustainability and the circular economy. The roundtable will focus on the question of how the transition to a circular economy alters the roles and interplay of four primary pillars of society: city administration, the private sector, community organizations, and research innovation centers such as universities. After a welcome and introductions, a panel discussion will follow over lunch.
