“The Intercultural Cities (ICC) programme of the Council of Europe has commissioned Nordic Sustainability to develop this policy brief. The aim is that it can be used as a resource for cities on how best to integrate the agendas of interculturalism and green development through the lens of the circular economy concept…Taking the core principles of the intercultural approach into account, green sustainable development policies and actions should also ensure equal rights and opportunities for all.” (p. 3)
This brief explains “how the intercultural and the circular economy development agendas are interrelated” and shares examples of best practice for moving forward with both agendas simultaneously, while pursuing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (p. 3).
