Bologna Municipal Authority

Summary

Bologna Municipal Authority’s Register for Active Participation (Registro Cittadinanza Attiva del Comune di Bologna) represents an excellent example of governance structures and new legal frameworks aimed at fostering circular economy initiatives. The municipal authority has approved several circular economy projects within the framework of Bologna’s Regulations for the Care and Regeneration of Urban Public Property that was adopted by the Municipal Authority in 2014. One example is the association REUSE WITH LOVE, which is registered on the list for active participation in Bologna, with its two projects REUSE WITH LOVE and REUSE FOR GOOD.
