Is circularity viable and accessible to all?

When engaging citizens is a child’s game: the Alkmaar experiment

Residents monitoring pollution with their own sensors and videogames involving children in city planning: Alkmaar pushes citizen engagement into new territory. Additionally, thanks to a “digital twin”, the city fosters a new sustainable mindset and increases residents’ control over local policies.
