The Circular North America side event focused on the opportunities, issues and challenges associated with advancing North America’s circular transition.

This interactive event supported networking and community building through plenary and break-out sessions. Participants had the opportunity to share their own experiences and brainstorm a path forward for the circular economy within the North American context. The full discussion paper, reflecting input from participants, is now available.

The side event was organized in partnership with the Circular Economy Leadership Coalition, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and MIT Solve, and built on discussions from The journey to a circular economy in the Canada-US region, a WCEFonline session that was held September 29, 2020.
