Challenge / Goal
Recognizing the need to bring the circular economy to life and to provide practical examples of circularity in action, the city of The Hague together with the members of its URBACT local group came up with the idea of the Circular Lab 070.
The goal of the Circular Lab was to explore how best to support people to unlearn certain existing habits in exchange for new practices and ways of doing things, in order to promote more sustainable and circular behavior.
The Circular Lab 070 offers citizens in The Hague the opportunity to enrich their knowledge and skills in the field of sustainability and circular economy. It provides the opportunity for participants to exchange and discuss with others, building their network and inspiring the development of new circular solutions.
Through various low-threshold creative workshops, interventions and information meetings, in which knowledge enrichment, capacity building and behavioural change for both the elderly and young people are central, Circular Lab 070 makes the circular economy tangible and accessible.
Involvement of local residents was crucial and a key aim of the circular lab, helping to provide them with expertise and increased awareness of circular economy activities.
