Next steps and how to get involved
First green deal started in 2013 and was finalised end of 2017.
The new green deal 2018-2021 will include a sector based approach and scaling of initiatives and even cooperation between countries and regions.
Belgium (Flanders) and Finland have adopted the concept and started their own green deals in 2017.
A wider interest network is under development with ICLEI.
Knowledge has already been shared in 2 international conferences on Circular Procurement in Amsterdam in 2016 and Tallinn in 2017 (see weblink below).
