Urban metabolism in policy and practice: a global discussion

In a collaboration between the ISIE Sustainable Urban Systems Section, Metabolism of Cities, and the Institute of Urban Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences, a seminar on urban metabolism in policy and practice will be held in Beijing on July 6, 2019. 

During this event conversations, presentations, and discussions will take place with a focus on Beijing and how urban metabolism research and tools can assist in policy and practice, in particular around the topic of solid waste challenges in the city. This event brings together a variety of people from government, academia, and practice. This is a full-day event that takes place just before the conference starts, and it is open to conference attendees and other interested parties. Places are limited and priority will be given to people engaging in research or other work related to solid waste and the link with urban metabolism. 

This event forms part of a seminar series, which includes events in Cape Town (May 2019), Beijing (July 2019) and Brussels (October 2019).
