    Event Description:

    Join Synergy Foundation, Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce, and Economic Development Cowichan for a virtual lunch n' learn exploring a vision of a thriving circular economy in Cowichan and across Vancouver Island.

    As an island community, we import most of our goods and export most of our waste. The circular economy offers opportunities to strengthen our local, island-based, economy. A circular economy is one where:

    • We share more than we own, freeing income and sparing resources
    • New ideas come to life and inspire other regions
    • Products are made and repaired locally
    • Economic equality is the new norm
    • One’s waste is another’s resource

    During the Lunch n’ Learn we will cover the following:

    • Circular economy overview
    • Examples of local and global businesses operating within the circular economy
    • Identify local opportunities to increase economic opportunity and resilience while having a positive impact on the environment

    Date/Time Information:

    12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
