Circular Community

Friday, October 5, 2018


“Circular economy” is the new buzz phrase in sustainability, development, and planning. But what does it mean to be circular? How does a community build its own needs into a localized definition of circularity that is both environmentally sustainable and equitably serves the needs of a city or neighborhood? How can we build circularity into New Orleans as it is, and into our shared vision of a future New Orleans?

No Waste NOLA, in partnership with Global Green USA and Ecologic Institute, is hosting a workshop to welcome a wide array of local activists and a small group of visiting thinkers from the POCACITO Project to address these questions. We’ll share common and respective experiences and create a visioning space for community-based definitions of “circular economy”.

You have been invited to bring your voice to the table because of your experience in art + activism, sustainability + stewardship, planning + design, or creative placemaking. We hope you’ll join us.

This conversation is not the first and it will not be the last. Come vision with us.
