We assert that cities are vital arenas for circular economy transitions and, with partners, over the last year have been developing a community of thinkers, doers and enablers working on circular African cities. This session will offer a 15 minute crash course on Circular African Cities for those new to the concept, hear from ICLEI Africa, the African Circular Economy Network and Metabolism of Cities on new developments in their work. The session will then offer opportunities to meet those interested in circular cities and invite reflection on how the community of practice in circular african cities could add value to you your work as urban practitioners.
