Circular Canada: Exploring the Circular Economy on the Road to WCEF 2020

Businesses, policymakers and civil society representatives interested in the unique CE issues and challenges in North America and in resource-rich economies like Canada. All WCEF 2019 participants who wish to contribute ideas to next year’s forum agenda are welcome to join.


Join us for an opportunity to learn about the unique Circular Economy opportunities and challenges for Canada as a vast, resource-rich economy, and to contribute ideas for the development of the agenda for the World Circular Economy Forum 2020. In an interactive workshop hosted by The Circular Economy Leadership Coalition (CELC) on the heels of the World Circular Economy Forum 2019, explore and highlight the most pressing circular economy issues facing the international community.

Hear from dignitaries and experts on how the circular economy relates to topics as diverse as resilient cities, resource-rich economies, plastics pacts, the bio-economy and the role of local government. Alongside Canadian and global experts, give firsthand insights to help inform the key themes, topics and considerations that need to be included in the design of the Canada-hosted World Circular Economy Forum 2020. Together we can work towards a global gathering that increases momentum towards a sustainable circular economy.
