The LIFE Programme will be one of the exhibitors at the 16th European Forum on Eco-innovation, ‘Wasted potential! Towards circular economy in cities’, which takes place in Hannover, Germany in April. The forum is the joint initiative of the European Commission and the German federal ministry for the environment and building (Bundesministerium für Umwelt und Bauen).

The forum will focus on the challenges facing city authorities, businesses and citizens when moving towards a ‘circular economy’ urban model that takes into account the use of renewable energies and alternative energy sources in the production and consumption of good and services. The event will highlight eco-innovations that support such moves and enable cities to meet new targets for municipal waste treatment in line with revised EU legislation.

Held during the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology at Hannover Messe (7-11 April), the forum will be linked to the Metropolitan Solutions and IndustrialGreenTech fairs and will take place in parallel to the EMAS meetings/EMAS awards ceremony, the ETV Stakeholder Forum and the ETV presentation of Statements of Verification. Attendees will have free access to the Hannover Messe and can join walking tours on a range of subjects.
The European Forum on Eco-Innovation was established to create networking opportunities and exchange innovative practices. One of the main aims is to provide local authorities with solutions for implementing more sustainable waste management systems.
