What existing Circular Economy innovations can we adopt in Tasmania?

Join us online in Zoom for an insightful presentation on the economic potential of transitioning to a circular economy. Churchill Fellow, Brad Mashman, will present success stories from Belgium, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. With waste production in Australia increasing by 5 million tonnes since 2017, this report highlights the critical success factors and future opportunities for Tasmania and Australia. Discover how the EU’s circular economic packages, driven by strong leadership and collaboration among stakeholders, generated €147 billion in value-added outputs while restoring relationships with the environment. Don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity to open your eyes to the possibilities – and the work that must be done – for Tasmania to transition to a circular economy.

By the end of this event, participants will have knowledge of:

  • Recovery Circular Economic Hub products and services
  • Circular economic initiatives in Europe and the UK
  • Circular economy innovations emerging from applied initiatives
  • Products and services that could be replicated in Tasmania
