The project is set to produce a number of deliverables which will be published on this page once completed. The implementation of Circular Economy in the Construction Sector in the Nordics requires discussion, knowledge and cooperation.

Look forward to:

  1. A State of the Art Analysis on Circularity in the Nordic Construction Markets including Barriers and Possibilities and a list of Recommendations
  2. Joint Metrics for Evaluating the Level of Circularity
  3. An Online Collaboration Platform
  4. A set of National Fora
  5. Online Learning Materials

During the course of the project we have actively participated in conversations in our joint market. Check out these points of view from some of our experts on Circular Economy in the Construction Sector in the Nordics:

Nordic Living Environments Reimagined – Towards a Nordic Narrative for Construction Culture, Blog post by Emma Harju, Ministry of Education and Culture, Finland

The first edition of the Festival of the New European Bauhaus (NEB) gathered different stakeholders in Brussels on 9-12 June 2022. We at the Ministry of Education and Culture Finland and The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux decided to make the most of it by organising an official side event, which invited participants to consider how the Nordic countries could interpret the values of the movement: beautiful, sustainable, together.
