Greennovation Workshop: Circular Economy

June 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Be a part of the conversation, as we bring the topics of social enterprise & economy FULL CIRCLE.

In this presentation, you will gain insight into this concept called circular economy and what this would mean for a sustainable future.

Our speaker Gurbeen writes, “the beauty of social enterprise and the circular economy is that you can create an incredible impact on so many fronts, but more critically: people, planet, profit and purpose. The alignment of these value is the KEY to generating self-sustaining change and true empowerment.”
