REPAiR agrees with Ferrao et al.(2013) ‘that we need to begin to redesign parts of the structure that underlies the process of achieving sustainability, based on new ideas from every trace of sustainability we can locate’. Hence, design in its widest sense plays a crucial role in developing strategies for circular economy (CE). REPAiR organises peri-urban living labs (PULLs), where key actors, representatives of regions, municipalities, corporations, individuals, design professionals, information technologists, scientists and students collaboratively generate new ideas and strategies for the development of CE. WP 5 organised the PULLs and is described in more detail below.
