Cyprus,18 October 2023
The first Workshop of the Social Experiment on Circular Economy in Construction and Buildings successfully took place on the 13 October 2023.
The workshop was attended by all relevant stakeholders involved throughout the entire construction industry supply chain, from design to waste management, including government and academia.
The workshop focused on analysing the context of the construction industry in Cyprus today and identifying the reasons why a transition to a circular model would be necessary. Furthermore, the stakeholders through an interactive process, seek to identify the major constraints and barriers that hold back the industry from efficiently transforming and transitioning.
The outcomes of the workshop will serve as input to the following two workshops that will be focusing on developing possible practical solutions, business models, roadmap and/or policy recommendations to kick-start the industry’s transition.
Warm thanks to all participating stakeholders, members, and supporters of the CYS Circular Economy Hub.
