The Circular City Actions Framework
The Circular City Actions Framework provides urban changemakers with five complementary strategies they can use to start working towards a more circular system. The framework is action-based to provide users with concrete strategic directions and showcase the desired outcomes of each strategy.
It builds on the three circular economy principles developed by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the 9 R Framework and Circle Economy´s Key Elements Framework and adapts them to fit the specific context of cities and sharpen the focus on stimulating systemic change.
