Circular City Berlin
The Corona crisis as a combined health and economic crisis has shown how highly fragile our differentiated economic system, which is geared towards short-term efficiency, is. The circular economy offers a way out. In particular, regional economy and resource cycles are essential for future sustainability, as local and regional circular value creation is more sustainable, increases the resilience of societies in times of crisis and strengthens social justice and inclusivity.
The project "Circular City Berlin" analyses and supports innovative approaches to the circular economy in different sectors of Berlin. Given the growth of the Berlin metropolis as well as urban densification and increased economic prosperity, the long-term sustainable design of urban resource flows is increasingly coming into focus.
The project takes place within the framework of the joint project "Knowledge. Transformation. Berlin: Transdisciplinary Research for a Social and Ecological Metropolis" of the research network Ecornet Berlin and is carried out with the financial support of the Governing Mayor, Senate Chancellery - Science and Research Berlin.
