2017 Zero Waste Conference
November 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$200
Eliminating waste and creating value are essential pillars in a new way of doing business and developing policy – a new norm of addressing waste in every sector of our lives. And no approach offers greater promise for realizing those goals than the principles of the Circular Economy. Forward-looking businesses, governments, and consumers are changing their behaviours – viewing every decision through the lens of zero waste and circular economy ambitions. Throughout the economy, examples abound – and we are privileged to witness a massive shift in thought and action.
For the past seven years, Metro Vancouver’s Zero Waste Conference has been at the forefront of this journey in Canada – pushing boundaries, advancing dialogue and inspiring action.
The 2017 edition will showcase on a global and local scale how we can:
- reimagine linear systems of production and consumption with waste prevention and the circular economy in mind
- advance organizational change and collaborate across sectors to develop new solutions and approaches
- embrace new ways of thinking, innovation, and disruption to address barriers and intractable problems
- benefit from this emerging opportunity – whether you are a business, government, or community sector leader
On November 1, 2017 we will welcome the perspectives of innovative thinkers at the edges of possibility, the hard headed realists turning ideas into solutions, and the policy makers who provide the framework for action. Is the circular economy truly within reach? At Metro Vancouver’s 2017 Zero Waste Conference you’ll find out why the answer is a resounding Yes.
Please help us keep the conversation going. Visit the website on a regular basis and follow the conference blog. Presentations and graphic illustrations from the 2016 Conference are available under “Sessions”.
