In the project Creative Circular Cities, local authorities, business support organisations and NGOs showcase in six demo cities how cultural and creative sectors and industries can trigger circular business growth and promote circular consumption among people.
Project summary

Circular transition at local level is the key first step towards a comprehensive Circular Economy (CE), as it allows a “system change” that integrates the production & consumption side at manageable scale. However, concrete practices for this are still rare in the BSR. Cultural and Creative Sectors & Industries (CCSI) can be both facilitators of circular consumption and frontrunners for circular production: As a social force, they have great influence on the mind sets of people and can promote “circular lifestyles”. At the same time, they are a business field with high innovation potential that can support circular business models. CCSI, therefore, can be drivers for a comprehensive circular transition at the local level. CCC initiates a transnational co-creation process, in which 6 demo cities will jointly develop & test CCSI-driven approaches for an integrated circular transition. In each of them, local authorities, business support organisations and NGOs team up to > launch enabling environments for CCSI-driven circular transition, > help businesses to create CCSI-supported circular business models, > promote “circular lifestyles” with CCSI assistance. The results are processed into a “CCC Starter Kit”. It gives interested actors in other BSR cities concrete guidance to involve CCSI into circular transition and is pro-actively disseminated to them. A “CCC Policy Roadmap” facilitates dialogue with policy makers on potentials of the approach & support needs.
