“Circular talks”: a DRIVE-0 series of webinars on BuildUP

The circular economy is a model of production and consumption based on sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, renewing, and recycling existing materials, products, and systems for as long as possible. Contrary to the linear economy, the circular economy offers a different approach to stimulating economic growth and creating green jobs by actively contributing to reducing environmental impacts and supporting a low-carbon economic recovery to achieve the transition to climate neutrality. 

The “Circular Talks” series of webinars aims to present and promote the Circular and Consumer Centred Business Model as developed in the framework of DRIVE 0 through the illustration of case studies where specific circular solutions have been applied to implement deep renovation. The series includes three webinars tailormade for the specific target groups involved in the renovation process of the building stock: academic researchers and students, private property owners, building managers, social housing companies and federations, professionals in the field of architecture and engineering, design firms, and SMEs. 

The webinars are hosted by the BuildUP platform and coordinated by several partners of the DRIVE 0 Consortium: UNIBO – University of Bologna (DA – Department of Architecture and DSE – Department of Economics), in cooperation with the organisations UIPI – International Union of Property Owners, HE – Housing Europe, and ACE – Architects’ Council of Europe.
