Circular Economy & the Role of Transport Planning
The circular economy is about creating opportunities for better growth, through an economic model that is resilient, distributed, diverse and inclusive. In our role as city shapers, how can transport planners and traffic engineers drive circular economy principles of waste and pollution reduction, material re-use and natural system regeneration?
