Sustainability Victoria invites you to an online circular economy masterclass exclusively for Victorian Councils hosted by Jodie Bricout.
About this event
This online masterclass is aimed at local government staff wanting to turbo-charge their circular economy projects.
About the Circular Economy
The circular economy grows economies while reducing the environmental impacts of production and consumption. It achieves this by using resources more effectively, keeping products and assets in use longer, and by capturing the materials in their ‘waste’ to become new resources. It’s a $210 billion opportunity for Australia and one that can help councils create local jobs, reduce spend on energy and waste management, cut greenhouse gas emissions and more.
Who should attend
This masterclass is suitable for beginners through to experts and designed for council officers, coordinators, managers, executives and other decision-makers working in:
• economic development
• infrastructure and engineering
• waste and sustainability.
Optional pre-reading and preparation exercises will be provided for attendees to get the most out of the session.
What you’ll do
In one short morning, you will have the opportunity to:
• Hear about circular opportunities and challenges from leading councils.
• Work on real-life examples with peers from across Victoria.
• Get inspired and connected to seize the economic, environmental and social opportunities of going circular.
What you’ll gain
This exciting, online and interactive masterclass will:
