Circular Economy Workshop

Please see below information and invitation to participate in the City's first Circular Economy Workshop. Applications are due June 4, 2018, capacity is limited. Please feel free to reply should you have any questions.

 The City of Toronto invites you to attend its first Circular Economy Workshop on June 14, 2018 (full-day event), in downtown Toronto. The goal of a circular economy approach is to design products, services and supply chains in ways that support economic growth, build social prosperity, minimize environmental impacts, and maximize the use and value of materials.

This Workshop brings together stakeholders to learn more about Toronto's goal of becoming a Circular City. It will engage participants to share their existing efforts and ideas of how we can move towards a circular economy in Toronto through interactive activities and discussion. Feedback received will be used to help inform and identify priorities for a City-led Circular Economy Advisory Group which will be formed later in 2018.

This event is open to Toronto-based organizations and businesses that are interested in learning more about how they can make their initiatives more circular, including:

  • Small and medium enterprises, business improvement areas, and associations
  • Representatives from the resource management, energy sector, food and agriculture, construction, textiles/fashion, electronics, renewable energies, etc.
  • Non-profit organizations and community groups 

Participants will have the opportunity for their circular initiatives to help establish a baseline circular economy business/industry listing for Toronto.

Interested businesses and organizations are invited to complete an application to attend by Monday June 4, 2018. Capacity is Limited, and a maximum of 1 guest can attend from each organization. All applicants will be contacted by June 6, 2018 to confirm participation. An agenda will be sent to registered participants in advance.
