Book launch Circular Communities

A design method for collectively closing resource flows

On December 1st our book ‘Circular Communities’ was launched in ‘t Gemaal in the Afrikaanderwijk, which is one of the case studies discussed within the book. “In Circular Communities, pioneering, collectively supported initiatives that are aimed at closing resource cycles at neighbourhood level take a central position. They are all examples of initiatives that contribute to the transition to a circular economy. Circular Communities offers inspiration and lessons for integral sustainable interventions at the scale of the neighbourhood and ties in with the new Dutch Environmental Planning Act, which explicitly offers room for citizen initiatives and local commissioning in the Netherlands.”
