Cities and local authorities must act as enablers through economic development, urban planning, and innovation policies; they must effectively coordinate civil society and the private sector in the implementation of measures relating to waste and materials, energy, water, land and natural ecosystems impacting urban infrastructures, the built environment, and the mobility system; and they must embrace the strong influence of digital technology as a powerful support to the circular and sustainable transition. During this summit, plenary sessions will welcome mayors and key officials’ speeches, keynotes and panels; workshops will enable projects holders, at operational scales, to develop implementation plans, ideas and strategies on themed experiments (waste management, water-energy nexus, remanufacturing, sharing services...); and city-entreprise speed-dating will be a privileged framework for city/locality officials to meet with companies on specific projects developments and highlight of equipment and technology potentials into circularity.

An area for meetings between executives, managers of specific projects and specialists to discuss opportunities and problems on the African continent.

The country has experienced high levels of growth over the last two years, its cities are growing fast, and have to deal with the resulting problems: pollution, transport, healthcare, etc. 


GREEN DAYS will take place within Pollutec Fair at our designated stand (Hall 4 M084).
