The Circular Economy could bring significant economic, environmental and social benefits to the European Union, its Member States and its productive fabric. It contributes to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. The concept of ‘commitments’ in the framework of ‘shared responsibilities’ is key.
In order to deliver, in accordance with these goals, resource efficiency, job creation, low-carbon prosperity, a healthy environment, clean production and sustainable consumption, it is necessary to take a holistic approach by working across a number of policy areas.
Failure to address every aspect of the issue by developing only partial solutions will prevent the EU from enjoying the overarching benefits the circular economy can provide. ‘Walking the Circle’.

The same is true for the other EU policies. There is a need for integrated multi-stakeholder value chain strategy addressing the SDGs and  Planetary Boundaries as Resource Efficiency & Circular Economy, Climate & Energy Transition, Bio-Economy & Sustainable Agriculture, Life Style & Behavior.
This strategy needs to be cross-borders and can be supported by EU initiatives as the European Innovation Partnerships and the Knowledge and Innovation Communities.
The first day of the workshop provided an overview of leading initiatives and prepare a European  joint initiative.
The second day of the workshop provided an overview of leading Italian initiatives and prepare specific recommendations.
