COST Action Circular City is building an interdisciplinary platform for connecting city planners, architects, system designers, economists, engineers and researchers from social and natural sciences
– to develop nature-based solutions in the urban landscape
– that facilitate circular economies based on the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recover) and
– so allow cities to cope with future challenges.
Katrin Bohn and André Viljoen represent the UK in this COST Action – fully titled: COST Action 17133 Implementing nature-based solutions for creating a resourceful city – which started in October 2018 and will run for four years.
