  • Date: September 15, 2021
  • Time: 8:30-10:30am PT / 11:30am-1:30pm ET
  • Registration: Registration information coming soon
  • Hosts: This WCEF2021 Accelerator event is hosted by the Circular Cities and Regions Initiative – a collaboration between the National Zero Waste Council, RECYC-QUEBEC, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, and the Recycling Council of Alberta. Co-hosted with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

Description: Cities and regions are where people, knowledge, ideas, and data come together, where innovation is cultivated, and where most of our natural resources are consumed and our waste generated. Local policymakers are committed to creating thriving, resilient and livable communities by delivering on a range of societal, economic, and environmental objectives while taking bold action on climate change. These inherent dynamics position our cities and regions at the forefront of the circular economy transition – addressing global challenges through innovative local solutions. 

Who Should Attend? Targeted to an audience of local government and community leaders, and policy-makers.
