Circular Economy Professional Workshops – City of Paris

Circular Economy Professional Workshops – City of Paris

At the end of 2019, the City of Paris initiated a process to mobilize cultural actors as part of its circular economy plan, in order to support, based on their specificities, needs and the experiences of peers, the cultural establishments and venues of the City of Paris towards circular economy models in their sector of activity. The result was a first booklet of 9 toolboxes published on

In 2021, the City of Paris, in partnership with COAL and Les Augures, will continue this collaborative work by exploring new thematic fields through two cycles of workshops on digital sobriety and materials, which will complement the tools already available.



A working group led by the Augures will meet from March to June 2021 on the digital issue in the cultural sector, in an approach of efficiency, sobriety in energy and material consumption.

The objective of these working groups is to identify the constants and needs and to increase the competence of the cultural sector. This reflection will result in a new resource document on the subject.



The second working group deals with the materials in a sectorial approach and the identification of the problems of each profession concerned (scenographer, stage manager, curator, technician, director, etc.).

The objectives of this working group are to identify the constants and needs and to increase the competence of the cultural sector on the issue of materials and the circular economy.


The work done in these two working groups will result in a transmission and sharing event in September.
