The circular economy is a key approach to leading society toward sustainable land management through a more efficient use of resources, an aspect that is of central relevance to the achievement of the United Nations 2030 Agenda goals. Venice, as well as the rest of the Veneto region, intends to be innovative in this field, addressing technical and operational challenges arising from the peculiarities of its territory.
This meeting will focus on how the city of Venice, together with other municipalities and businesses in the metropolitan system, is addressing the challenges of circularity in production systems, also through the introduction of innovative approaches and solutions.
The discussion will delve into the actions initiated by the Veneto Region to make circularity more widespread and applicable in the regional territory, including via the interdisciplinary involvement of academic research.
Finally, policies, practices, and innovation in our territory will be compared with solutions implemented in other international contexts, in order to exchange knowledge about virtuous strategies that are implemented elsewhere and that can be an example for applications in the metropolitan and Veneto context
