Nº5: The cities of the future

Imagine a city where every action, every choice, and every waste turns into a new opportunity - where everything resonates like a note in the symphony of circularity.

In the Circular Economy, this vision can become a reality. The course of cities can be rewritten through this model, which, among other things, inspires us on how to completely redefine urban operation, metamorphosing cities into vibrant and sustainable ecosystems.

In this new horizon, the reuse of organic waste can be a reality - for example, with composting generating natural fertilizers and biogas production for energy. Product design promotes circularity, facilitating disassembly and recycling, while business models encourage reuse.

Material recycling takes center stage, driving renewable energy and sustainable agricultural practices. Sharing emerges in the economy, optimizing resources, and supply chains become circular, reintegrating products into the production cycle through reverse logistics systems.

In urban areas, the Circular Economy materializes conceptions, paving the way for a future where circularity is the main guideline.
