7 May 2019 – 2PM – CET

As our throwaway culture tends to show its limits, waste prevention and repair in order to reuse seem are the right answer. In that sense, cities happen to be the perfect level to promote reuse initiatives and gather its citizens around socially and environmentally sustainable projects.

  • What can a municipality do to boost reuse?
  • What is the job creation potential and economic savings of launching a local reuse strategy?
  • What are best practices in the field of reuse?
