#EURegionsWeekUniversity: Is circular economy the future of our regions?

Virtual session Tuesday 13th, October 2020 – 09:30 – 11:00

There’s a world of opportunity to rethink and redesign the way we make, take and dispose of products in a spatial context. It is fundamental for territorial development and the move towards a circular process. There is an urgent need for a change in perspective on the way our economy works and should work in terms of product design, energy use, waste streams and taxing labour. More than ever we need collaboration between stakeholders, regions and urban and rural areas. The perspective of a circular economy raises the question as to whether, with creativity and innovation, we can build a restorative economy to foster a more sustainable development.

Within the context of its projects DETECTE and BIOREGIO, AC3A and the Chambers of Agriculture are taking part:

Programme:

  • André Torre (Head of Research, INRAE, University Paris-Saclay); Prof. Eveline van Leeuwen ( Academic director AMS, Wageningen University); Dr. Sebastien Bourdin: The need for a circular economy: an economic and regional overview.
  • Pascal Dagron (Head of the Association of the Chambers of Agriculture of the Atlantic Area): Agriculture, energy transition and circular economy: which synergies?

This session will be chaired by Sébastien Boudin.

The registration is open from 27 August to 27 September 2020.
