The present session proposal aims to collect contributions on the application of circular economy’s principles to urban development, with a multiscale approach. Specifically, the main, but not exclusive focus, will be the economic feasibility and planning case studies of interventions promoting a diverse paradigm than the “traditional linear extract-produce-use-dump material and energy flow model of the modern economic system which is problematic in terms of economic, social and environmental sustainability” (Korhonen et al., 2018: p. 544).
