Presented as part of UNGA Climate Week by Circular City Coalition (CCC) Members PYXERA GlobalMetabolicClimate-KICEnel North AmericaFirst Mile, and Rheaply. Special thanks to Ethic for partnering with the CCC to host this event.
The current climate change emergency, once-in-a-lifetime policy shifts, systemic inequalities, and a rapidly growing global population are causing many to consider the limitations of the current take-make-waste economic platform. Circular solutions already exist that can help cities rapidly decarbonize in an equitable context -- they only lack the regulatory environment to incentivize an authentic human transition. This session focuses on how cities can integrate and incentivize decarbonization, equity, and economic development under one framework and help steward a new economic paradigm that prioritizes the lives and livelihoods of its citizens and the natural environment over excess and waste.
