The Circular Innovation City Challenge

On 23rd February, frontrunner cities Copenhagen, Glasgow, Amsterdam, Toronto, and New York City are coming together with the Danish Business Authority and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to officially launch the Circular Innovation City Challenge — seeking innovative digital and data-based solutions that can help create socially thriving, climate-neutral cities.

The event is part of a collaboration with the World Circular Economy Forum and will give you the chance to:

  • Hear inspirational talks from leading keynotes within the circular economy, circular cities, data, and digitization
  • Meet the partner cities represented by the City of Copenhagen, Glasgow City Council, City of Amsterdam, City of Toronto, and New York City Economic Development Corporation in a panel discussion about their circular ambitions, climate actions, and visions for future thriving cities
  • Learn more about why and how you as a business and innovative solution provider can submit your digital and/or data-driven city solution as a challenge proposal

This challenge provides an exciting opportunity for innovators to explore circular economy solutions that shape and deliver resilient and thriving cities. Tackling the root causes of global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution – the circular economy provides a systems framework to deliver better growth, at scale, across our cities.
