Between Adaptation and Mitigation: the Role of Circular Economy in tackling Climate Change

Saturday 6th November 2021 from 17.00 to 17.30 CET (Brussels Tome)

COP is the Conference of Parties, it gathers the Countries that signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC): a treaty that came into force in 1994 to prevent “dangerous” human interference with the climate system.

The COP 26 (twenty-sixth session of the Conference of the Parties) UN Climate Change Conference, hosted by the UK in partnership with Italy, will take place from 31 October to 12 November 2021 in Glasgow, UK.

As the European Union offered the possibility to apply for a spot to participate in the event under its initiative the 'EU Pavillion - European Union Side Event COP26', #replaceteam decided to partner with DigiPrime and the Policy Lab to take part in this historic conference while promoting the debate around the importance of circular economy in fighting climate change.

The event highlights the role of circular economy in fighting climate change: the transition represents a viable solution to overcome the enormous pressure economic activities and consumption pose on the environment and on ecosystems.

 The event showcases current actions that are being deployed to support a systemic transition:

-REPLACE project: orienting the Policy Instruments and the regional budget toward the transition

-DigiPrime project: supporting the industrial transition

-PolicyLab: opening the discussion to a larger public of Policymakers and stakeholders
