Circularity City

Shaping our urban future


In the future, most people will live in cities. Finding enough resources to expand and rebuild our urban centers will prove a major challenge. At the same time, cities provide ideal conditions for developing new ways to build and organise urban life that is resource efficient and abundant by design. Circularity City brings together those companies and municipalities in the Central Denmark Region that are willing to take the lead and demonstrate how to shape our future circular cities.


In 2012, The Central Denmark Region made circular economy a driver for sustainable business development. Today, circularity is widely acknowledged as the business paradigm of the future. Being first movers in the transition to a circular economy, the business and municipalities of Central Denmark Region are ready to seize the opportunities this paradigm presents.

Circularity City is a three-year development project (2017-2020) initiated by Central Denmark Region. The project will accumulate the knowledge produced in existing circular initiatives, creating new innovative solutions for the built environment, and works to create demand for these solutions both in Central Denmark Region and globally. (Danish website)
