Memo

The quest for the sustainable city has until recently focused on the efficient use of resources with the application of technical advances giving rise to the definition of SMART Cities. The economic model emphasised, however, is still “linear” in the sense that the design and consumption follow the pattern of extraction of natural resources, manufacturing, product usage and waste disposal. With its roots in environmental economics, the idea of the circular economy is to implement the life cycle of products, services, waste, materials and energy. The concept needs to be embedded not only in the original design but also in all process phases and during production, which ought to be as efficient as possible. The achievement of the goals proposed by the circular economy requires the cooperation of the community, as well as technological changes and advances. The need to base suitable development on the environmental, economic and social points of view, demands an integrated approach to solve the city problems including planning and development. Topics The following list covers some of the topics to be presented at Urban Growth 2020. Papers on other subjects related to the objectives of the conference are also welcome.
