Join us for Circular City Week 2021, a festival focused on bringing people together to share solutions, inspire local action, and showcase innovations in circular economy practices. Interactive virtual talks will highlight circular approaches across a range of sectors and topics, focused on accelerating sustainable, efficient, and integrated solutions to the climate crisis.
