ResilieNtWEB workshop – Waste recycling in the urban food system – 23th June 2014, 2:00 PM

Imagine an urban food system based on nutrients cascading from one production to another… This event will make you taste a sample of what it could be!

This workshop, “Waste recycling in the urban food system” is organized on Monday, 23th of June at 2:00 pm, at Mundo-B, Rue d’Edimbourg 26 in 1050 Brussels as a preview of a conference on Circular Economy and in the context of the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2014.

Our ResilieNtWEB team is opening this workshop to all SMEs interested by new development models, including Circular Economy. The workshop starts with an explanation of two innovative entrepreneurial projects which use organic waste to produce edible mushrooms or raise insects. This ‘in action’ case studies demonstrates how to create a stream of revenues through up cycling of waste.

This will be followed by an introduction to ResilieNtWEB Interreg IVB program, the various tools and support available to boost your management creativity and how it can also help SMEs focus on their own approach to the circular economy, resource efficiency & waste recycling.

Energy cities conference – What role can local authorities play in meeting the challenge of developing the Circular Economy – 24th June 2014, 14:30-17:30

The Circular Economy has a key role in the energy transition process at local level. But what is the role of local authorities in this process? Are they key players? Should they impulse, encourage and lead a local and systemic strategy in the Circular Economy as they have the best overview of who are the local players and what is going on in their territories? These questions will be discussed during this workshop as well as:

  • What’s behind the Circular Economy approach and concept?
  • How does the Circular Economy contribute to the energy transition at local level?
  • Should the Circular Economy be part of a local energy transition policy?
