- Building a strong and interconnected community of thought leaders and change makers working to accelerate a more circular North America.
- Examining the distinct policy, jurisdictional, cultural, economic, and industrial characteristics and factors that are shaping circular economies in our region.
- Identifying the successes and learnings we can leverage and adapt from our partners abroad.
