A circular economy is an alternative to the current linear "take, make, waste" economy. It aims to redefine growth and focus on society-wide benefits.

Come join us for our newest Spark Series event to learn about circular economy careers in the built environment. Our speakers will be giving 5-minute presentations on everything from the concepts behind circular economy to how the AEC industry is incorporating the circular economy. This program will spark discussion about how emerging professionals can get involved with circular economy projects and networks.

This is a great chance to meet sustainability professionals and catch up with colleagues.
