About Us

With the undeniable reality of a warming planet, swift measures are imperative to reduce our carbon output and waste production. Building cities that produce zero waste and carbon is a crucial step in combating climate change. The path to a sustainable city, one that safeguards our planet and future generations, demands collaboration and responsibility across all professional sectors.

 

Circular Cities Network (CCN) was established to realise this objective and has the commitment of eight global organisations: the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA), the International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP), the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), the International Union of Architects (UIA), the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), the International Society for Urban Health (ISUH), the Society of Sustainability and Green Materials (SSGM), and the World Green Infrastructure Network (WGIN).

Explore the transformative ideas and innovative solutions presented at the Dubai Circular Cities Summit. This event is a key highlight of our global initiative, bringing together thought leaders to share strategies for sustainable urban development in one of the world's most dynamic cities.

Join us for a series of impactful sustainability events in September 2024. These events will feature industry leaders and experts discussing the latest advancements in zero waste and carbon-neutral city solutions, paving the way for a more sustainable future

Collaborative Fight Forward

 Child Amidst Pollution

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.
