Urban fields returns from 18 to 22 November 2017 to talk about the circular economy in all its phases of the cycle: from design to upcycling to the recycling of materials.

The event will take place at theCascina Cuccagna of Milan, on the occasion of the European Week for Waste Reduction, in order to raise awareness of consumers, institutions and businesses on the environmental, economic and social value of the economy.

Donatella Pavan, professional journalist since 1998, engaged for 15 years in the dissemination of sustainable culture and creator of Urban fields, he claims:

“With the 5th edition of The Circular Market of Urban Fields we want to highlight the close link between the circular economy and the fight against climate change. In Europe, in fact, of the 16 tons of raw materials consumed on average by each citizen, 6 become waste and half of these ends up in landfills with obvious repercussions on climate-altering gas emissions, as well as the failure to recover the raw material.

A real loss also in economic terms. According to the study McKinsey Growth Wit hin: A circular economy vision for a competitive Europe commissioned by Ellen McArthur Foundation the circular economy could generate a growth of 1,800 billion between now and 2030, or double compared to the forecasts of the traditional economy ".

The "Urban Fields" Association it is based precisely on the principles of cooperation and respect for the environment, the territory and people, with the aim of developing the "Circuit of virtuous activities". It is a map showing all the places in the Milanese city - shops, parishes, libraries, etc. - where it is possible to recycle, reuse, share and repair objects.

This is to make the most of waste and promote social cohesion. Because waste, if managed well, can turn into precious resources for everyone!
