Webinar: Building Resiliency of Material Systems

September 22

Recycling Council of Alberta

Rarely have the flaws of our global economy come together so prominently as under our collective experience of COVID-19. Inter-dependent global supply chains, material extraction occurring at a faster rate than regeneration and an economic model focused on delivering profits and infinite growth at the expense of stability and resilience have been the hallmark of the “take-make-waste” tradition. The pandemic only served to pull the curtains on these flaws.

Now, the Recycling Council of Alberta will bring together leading experts from across the globe to share their vision for building resiliency for a future circular economy.

Invited speakers:

  • International Institute for Sustainable Development – Principles for a green recovery
  • City of Halifax – Advancing environmental policy in a pandemic
  • Upstream – Replacing single-use with sustainable systems
  • Circle Economy – Impact report on resiliency and circularity
