Urban mobility

A circular economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems.

Economy and Sustainable Development

1. Circular Economy and Sustainable Development
  • Humankind is facing its greatest challenge yet – to find a way to provide social and economic development for all without transgressing planetary boundaries, in other words, sustainable development.

  • The 2030 Agenda is our best plan to achieve sustainable development. The SDGS are the results framework of the agenda and are integrative and interlinked. The 5Ps are a useful lens with which to view the integrated nature of the 2030 Agenda.

  • Addressing the transformation required for sustainable development will require action on many fronts. One such is addressing our systems of production and consumption since the current linear models of production and consumption are unsustainable.

  • Circular Economy is a systemic approach that seeks to address the economic, environmental and social costs of the linear system of production and consumption by moving to a system that designs out waste and pollution, keeps products and materials in use and regenerates natural systems.

  • Circular Economy principles directly address SDG 12, the goal on sustainable consumption and production. Moreover, they also positively impact the achievement of several others.

Unlocking Circular Value

2. Unlocking Circular Value
  • Applying circular economy principles could result in a range of benefits for citizens, for businesses, for the economy and for the planet. It could have a significant impact on our efforts on climate change mitigation and adaptation.

  • Circular economy takes a systems-based view of products and services. It moves beyond linear models of take-make-dispose to drive greater value across the entire lifecycle of the product or service.

  • There are several tools that depict circular systems. The Butterfly Diagram, developed by the Ellen Macarthur Foundation focuses on circular production. It splits products and services into technical and biological components and looks at different means to increase the circularity of the product or service. It also identifies the principles of Circular value creation.

  • The relevance of CE extends beyond production to sustainable consumption. UNEP’s user-centric Circularity Diagram underlines the central role of users in a circular economy and identifies strategies to retain circular value.

  • Driving circular systems need enabling environments supported by appropriate policy measures.


3. Circular Business
  • Circularity presents imperatives and opportunities for business and consumer to drive sustainable development.

  • Transforming the business model into one that supports circularity is critical. This requires a holistic approach that considers all areas of business, all phases of a product lifecycle and all stakeholders involved in the processes and supply chains.

  • Novel business models fundamentally question asset ownership models, restructure product-customer relations and change how value is generated.

  • In order to measure the level of circularity and the impact on businesses, different tools and measurements are essential to measure true circular value and identify potential issues such as circular rebound and greenwashing.

  • A holistic and comprehensive policy mix to support circular economy seeks to break down silos, link CE to other policy domains and establish a level playing field for circular business so that they may contribute to sustainable circularity.


4. Circular Cities 
  • Cities represent an important locus for the transition to a circular economy because they represent a concentration of population, human productive activity and a concomitant generation of negative externalities impacting cities and their hinterlands. They could also serve as important hubs for circular innovation.

  • Urban metabolism views a city as an interdependent,dynamic ecosystem. It allows us to examine resource flows, their distributional impacts and their socio- political contexts in an integrated manner to help identify and realise circular opportunities in a city.

  • Circularity in the built environment of a city involves addressing building design and use, material sourcing and reusability, as well as addressing structural waste in the sector.

  • A circular city requires a mobility system that is accessible, affordable and effective for all its citizens. It needs to design out structural waste in mobility systems, address pollution and congestion issues and move beyond car-centric systems and infrastructure.

  • Circular food systems in cities need to be designed in line with the natural biocycle of food in order to regenerate cities and their hinterlands.

  • Integrated policies to make cities more circular can accelerate the implementation of the SDGs, especially SDG 11 and 12 but also indirectly, several others. 


5. Mainstreaming
  • While there are several circular initiatives globally, the world is still predominantly locked into linear systems of production and consumption, supported by factors that act as barriers to circular systems but could also be enablers to mainstream circularity.

  • Current policy structures are locked in to support linear models and are backed by existing power structures. Policies to address regulatory and market barriers to circularity need to be holistic, coherent and transformative.

  • Current consumption patterns are unsustainable. However, the new generation of aware consumers is demanding and driving change. Consumers, citizens and communities are a critical locus of change in circular economies.

  • Technological innovations hold great promise for circular transformations, and a collaborative technology strategy could leverage the power of technology appropriately.

  • While there is a small but fast-growing segment of sustainable investors, mainstreaming circular financing will require a broader conception of value, incorporating true cost and supporting a vision of balanced and equitable growth.

  • Circular initiatives are not an end in themselves; they need to contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda by supporting equitable, sustainable development.

How can be circular?

Unraveling the Cycling City

Re-imagine the street as a space for negotiation and social interaction. 

Compare and contrast the experience of cycling to the experience of driving and walking. 

Explore the historical development of Dutch cycling. 

Examine the reciprocal interactions between land use and transport and identify how cycling fits into these systems.

Reclaiming the Street for Livable Urban Spaces

Explore the street as a space for experimentation and an arena for transitioning towards a new mobility paradigm. 

Understand how tactical urbanism can be deployed for maximum effectiveness in changing the streetscape. 

Articulate the relationship between citizen activism and the bureaucratic structure. 

Re-imagine the street as a space for people rather than infrastructure for moving traffic.
