Building a Circular economy in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) Region - September 28, 5:30-8:30pm
Event Description

Join us for a workshop to meet with those interested in developing a circular economy in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) region. A circular economy is a regenerative system which minimizes or eliminates resource inputs, waste, emissions, and energy leakages.

We will feature a number of initiatives which are nurturing a circular economy ecosystem. Presenters will provide examples of success stories of the circular economy and share their expertise on components of the circular economy including urban farming and workforce development, local business, advanced manufacturing focused on utilizing local resources and labor, ecoindustrial parks, and regional economic development.

In this workshop, you will:

Network with those who share a passion for sustainability as a lens for assessing systems;
Learn from those utilizing and/or developing circular economy practices;
Engage with others in small group discussion on how to expand these practices in business, our communities, and daily lives to accelerate the circular economy;
Develop an action framework to further enable the circular economy in our region; and
Receive a list of tools and resources on the circular economy.
This will be an exciting and practically focused workshop that will help you and others in the region to think forward in living our values. This will be Leaders in Energy’s 3rd annual circular economy event.

Early bird pricing is available through Thursday, September 21st. Rates also available for job seekers and students. Ticket includes workshop, list of tools and resources, refreshments and light beverages.


Urban and regional planners, economic development specialists, clean energy, sustainability, and resilience practitioners, business people and entrepreneurs seeking to implement circular economy practices, and citizens interested in the topic.
