Conference 3 of Smart Cities 2021

12 May Circular Economies

In our final conference, we explored the increasing need for our cities and communities to take a circular approach to how they use and consume resources. We’ll look at ways we can be smarter with our consumption; and importantly, we’ll look at the role technology will have to play in achieving our circular economy goals.
