The COVID-19 pandemic has been revealing – we are, despite our built environments and digital fixations, part of the natural world. As we look to recovery, our work is to forge a new, more resilient and equitable future where prosperity and environmental security are assured for generations to come.

The circular economy holds great promise – it creates economic opportunities, restores the environment and fosters an ethos that aligns with equity and social justice. This session will explore how Canadians can work together to make that promise a reality.
