Beschreibung

More than half of the world’s population currently lives in cities, and by 2050, this number will have increased to two thirds. The metabolism of cities — their consumption of energy and resources — already exceeds by far what the earth can provide. It is therefore imperative that we step back from our current linear ‘use and discard’ society, and move towards a more sustainable, circular economy.

Urban planners and architects must design buildings and urban spaces more intelligently, with multiple-use scenarios and sustainable cycles of future reuse in mind. This can start counterbalancing our current ‘use and discard’ society, reducing the strain on global resources. When materials have reached the end of their usefulness, they can be recycled and used again elsewhere, significantly increasing their service life. In this way, economic, social, and environmental benefits can be achieved in the longer term.

The symposium CITIES IN TRANSITION: THE FUTURE IS CIRCULAR addresses the importance of circular principles for the planning of our cities and buildings. National and international experts will discuss how these principles will influence future architecture and urban planning.
