We look forward to the fourth edition of our CIRCULAR FUTURES series, which will be dedicated to the future of construction on 20th of November 2019!
This event is intended to build the foundation for bringing together and connecting a wide range of players from the construction industry. Circular construction has to be brought out of its marginal position and moved forward to become more tangible and realisable so that actors in the construction sector can make relevant construction decisions differently, more circularly. With “Circular Futures - The Future of Construction”, we want to learn from each other, we want to be inspired and to get to know examples that show us how to do it right.
Above all it is about networking. Because only together we can initiate the changes in the industry that are urgently needed.
Because there is no planet B.

The construction industry is one of the most resource-intensive sectors of the economy and generates around 60 percent of our total waste.
CIRCULAR FUTURES is our new community workshop series consisting out of five events. At the beginning of June, we imagined with UN Champion of the Earth, Dr. Leyla Acaroglu, how a circular future could look like. This was followed in July by an exchange on social sustainability with a panel of four experts. In September, students were working on the topic of what the future of education must look like in order to remain sustainable.
One week after “The Future of Construction”, a full day workshop tour will end the CIRCULAR FUTURES series for this year. The theme: “The Future of the City”. More information will follow shortly.
We thank our funding partner EIT Climate-KIC for their support.
