Event description
Vancouver’s local circular economy is gaining momentum, and this three-part webinar series has something for everyone on the journey.

About this Event

Are you interested in creating a circular venture? Is the business you own or work at considering a circular transformation? This October, the Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC) and Vancity Credit Union are co-hosting a three-part series on the local Vancouver circular economy. The webinar series coincides with the expansion of Synergy Foundation's circular incubator, Project Zero, to the Lower Mainland for the first time.

Each session highlights different aspects of Vancouver’s regional circular economy, featuring the local landscape and flourishing circular businesses, tools to help businesses adopt circularity, and the opportunity to hear from successful early-stage ventures from Project Zero itself -- just in time for Project Zero’s intake applications to open, if you’re hooked on building a circular economy business.
