The large Circular Valley Project
, an accelerator for the circular economy, was launched in 2020. Although the project is 'different' from the previous projects of the WUPPERTALBEWEGUNG, it continues the previous projects, which were also "re-cycling", namely from old railway lines into leisure paths.
In the project, start-ups and researchers from all over the world are brought together locally and virtually with universities, research institutions and companies interested in implementing circular economy in the region Bergisches Land and the Rhine-Ruhr region. Among other things, jobs and scholarships will be made available for this purpose. Although based in Wuppertal, this project extends beyond Wuppertal and Germany.
