During the Circular Economy BOOSTcamp the city of Nijmegen was transformed into a hotspot for the circular economy. Participants from many different areas of expertise worked together on local circular challenges concerning the city island (stadseiland), local energy facilities and healthcare. A green deal was made for an energy neutral TPN West. On the first of June participants of BOOSTcamp met with alderman Harriët Tiemens to discuss the future of Nijmegen as a circular hotspot.Transforming a city into a circular hotspot in just three days is, of course, impossible. The Circular Economy BOOSTcamp is only the beginning: the moment when various different stakeholders join forces and get to work. This allows unique collaborations to take shape and innovative ideas to emerge. At the end of the third day concrete plans and goals are established to move forward, as was the case in Nijmegen this year.Stadseiland (City Island)‘’A circular city island that is iconic within the Netherlands and inspiring for the rest of Europe’’ was how the participants started their final presentation in the HONIG complex. A circular city island creates value, man and nature are in balance and new and existing initiatives are connected. During CE BOOSTcamp a number of collaborations concerning the city island were established. The municipality has made plans to use waste as a resource. Housing cooperative Talis wants to investigate the possibilities for bio-based construction on the island. The Vierdaagsefeesten (festivities during the four day marches) will open a discussion with participants to create an energy-neutral event, and there are plans for a circular water sports center on the island.EnergyIn 2045 Nijmegen wants to be energy-neutral. During BOOSTcamp, business area TPN West assumed a role as frontrunner in achieving this goal by signing a green deal towards energy neutrality with the municipality. Applying sustainable district heating is a concrete first step, in addition to generating and saving energy.HealthcareA hospital has to deal with very specific challenges, such as pharmaceutical residues in its waste water, food wastage and overcapacity of equipment. The participants of the Circular Economy BOOSTcamp have taken the first steps in bringing together different stakeholders to create circular solutions to these problems.Only the BeginningBOOSTcamp marks the beginning of the creation of a circular city. Now it is up to the participants and parties that were involved to take the required next steps towards Nijmegen as a circular hotspot. It is not without reason that Nijmegen was nominated for the European Green Capital Award. By building on the the projects proposed during Circular Economy BOOSTcamp Nijmegen can serve as an example, not just to the rest of The Netherlands, but also to Europe as a circular hotspot.
