Urban Impact

Towards a circular economy in our city

  • Events 16.05.2019
  • Location Frankfurt, Germany

"Urban Impact" by the Global Shapers Frankfurt Hub is an episode of the NEXT B2B FORUM – a platform for corporations and startups to mingle, exchange ideas and discuss about the future.
It involves a series of events creating a venue for thought leaders to shape the future of the cities in light of megatrends such as urbanisation and climate change. With our Circular Economy edition, the organisers engage stakeholders on the future of cities with respect to their increasing need for resource efficiency and circularity.

Building on the World Economic Forum white paper "Circular Economy in Cities: Evolving the model for a sustainable urban future", they bring together thought leaders (policymakers, municipality, corporates and start-ups) in order to shape the conversation on circular economy in cities and come up with commitments and policy tasks”
Vivek Jaisree Mohandas, German Chancellor Fellow in the Circular Economy Division at the Wuppertal Institute, will be a speaker in the  panel discussion "How to add scalability to the equation: making sustainability and circularity accessible for all citizens?".

The event is organised by Global Shapers Hub, Frankfurt in cooperation with Green Tech Hub and Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH. Further information can be found under the following links.
