“Beyond Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”, is an interview of Dr. Gillian Foster of the Institute for Ecological Economics about circular economy and buildings. She is interviewed about her work and the award winning article “Circular economy strategies for adaptive reuse of cultural heritage buildings to reduce environmental impacts”.
On 6th May the fourth and last Peer Review meeting in the framework of the CLIC project will be on stage, with a completely different approach, not only because of the online format driven by the circumstances, but also due to its purpose.
More and more people are becoming familiar with the concept of circular economy – an economic system that aims to eliminate physical waste by redesigning, reusing and redirecting materials and products in consumption and production processes. But can the same circular concepts be applied to something less material, like governance? And, more specifically, can this approach help save and support cities’ cultural heritage assets? Based on ICLEI’s research as part of the CLIC project, it can – and should.
As CLIC team, we are really proud of your efforts and enthusiasm in sharing your ideas for the adaptive resue of the Edifici Mondo, in spite of these trying times we are all going through. Now more than ever, we invite you all to participate, reminding you that your cooperation is essential to awaken these sleeping giants and build together something good for the community of Salerno.

Re.LIGHT | Lights on Cultural Heritage Guided “rediscovery” of Cultural Heritage in the historic centre of Salerno
The Horizon 2020 project CLIC in collaboration with associations and companies of the Salerno area, organizes the event GentleHacking: Re.LIGHT | Cultural Heritage in Light which provides an alternative guided tour in the context of Luci d’Artista 2019/2020.
The CLIC Knowledge and Information Hub platform provides a common space for researchers and practitioners to share and exchange knowledge about cultural heritage adaptive reuse, specifically in terms of “best practice”. Furthermore, it develops a pilot function based on requirements from the cities of Salerno, Rjieka, Amsterdam and Västra Götaland Region to showcase local reuse practices and “present” the abandoned heritage as assets/opportunities for adaptive reuse investments towards the implementation of a “circular city” model. The application in the four cities/territories, representing different geographic, historic, cultural and political contexts, is replicable in any other European (and not only European) city.
