Conference Overview:

Metro Vancouver’s Zero Waste Conference is back for its ninth year on October 30 & 31, connecting global thought leaders and celebrating the successes, innovations and fresh perspectives that are driving the transition to waste prevention and a circular economy that continues to gain momentum.

Canada’s unique circular solutions are already making a global impact – but how can Canada better integrate into the global circular economy? What does circular success look like for our economies and communities? How do we keep the momentum going?

These questions and more will be explored at the 2019 Zero Waste Conference, recognized as one of North America’s leading forums on waste prevention and the circular economy. Don’t miss keynotes by Skylar Tibbits, MIT; Valerie Craig, National Geographic; Harald Friedl, Circle Economy; Arthur Huang, Miniwiz; Tom Szaky, TerraCycle; and other extraordinary speakers.

Whether you’re totally new to the concept or an industry veteran, the Zero Waste Conference strikes a balance between theory and action. This event is your guide to the people, ideas and actions that are having the biggest impact.
