Circular Cities Summit
TOWARDS A ZERO-WASTE ZERO-CARBON CITY
Achieving a zero-waste zero-carbon city is crucial in the fight against climate change. We are facing the reality of a warming planet, and urgent action is needed to reduce our carbon footprint and waste generation. A sustainable city that prioritizes the well-being of the planet and future generations is the way forward. It requires collaboration and accountability from professionals in every sector, as we work towards a common goal of eliminating waste and carbon emissions in every aspect of urban life. Building a zero-waste zero-carbon city is not only necessary, but it’s also a collective responsibility that we must take seriously for the betterment of our planet.
A key highlight of the summit will be the signing of the all-important Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) by three world-leading professional organisations, namely International Federation of LandscapeArchitects1 (IFLA), International Society of City and RegionalPlanners2 (ISOCARP), and the World Federation of Engineering Organizations3 (WFEO). This MOU not only defines and reinforces the unique role of each profession but also celebrates their shared commitment to ethical practices that enhance the quality of life for humanity. The MOU signals to the world the significance of a united front in the battle against the global climate crisis, thus aligning with SDG 13 – Climate Action. This worldwide collaboration is supported by Knauf Insulation and Uniseal Global.
