Event description
Learn the basics of the Circular Economy concept and how it can increase economic opportunity and resilience in Cowichan.

About this Event

Join Synergy Foundation, Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce, and Economic Development Cowichan for a virtual lunch n' learn exploring a vision of a thriving circular economy in Cowichan and across Vancouver Island.

As an island community, we import most of our goods and export most of our waste. The circular economy offers opportunities to strengthen our local, island-based, economy. A circular economy is one where:

  • We share more than we own, freeing income and sparing resources
  • New ideas come to life and inspire other regions
  • Products are made and repaired locally
  • Economic equality is the new norm
  • One’s waste is another’s resource

During the Lunch n’ Learn we will cover the following:

  • Circular economy overview
  • Examples of local and global businesses operating within the circular economy
  • Identify local opportunities to increase economic opportunity and resilience while having a positive impact on the environment

Register and login to the session live on January 28 to be entered into a draw to win one of two one-year memberships with the Vancouver Island Green Business Collective (VIGBC), each a $275 value!

The VIGBC was built to recognize the efforts of local businesses that are reducing their environmental impact. For businesses, it is a guide to greening operations and educating staff. For consumers, it is a symbol that lets us know which businesses have green practices. Businesses can be certified as Silver, Gold or Green, with Green being the highest level of certification available. For more details on membership and certification, visit their website at https://www.vigbc.ca/.
