Reminder: April 30 the last day for communities to apply for the Circular Cities & Regions Initiative!
Friday is the deadline for local governments to apply to the Circular Cities and Regions Initiative (CCRI) led by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). The CCRI will offer a national webinar series on innovative approaches to advance a circular economy and provide direct support, guidance through a peer-to-peer (P2P) exchange for a group of 15 local governments.
An exciting list of advisors will mentor the participants. Their bios and info are available on the website and includes a contingent of national and international circular economy experts from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Circle Economy, and ReLondon and more!
The RCA is collaborating with national partners to promote this opportunity including The National Zero Waste Council (NZWC), and Recyc-Quebec in a pilot program to advance circular economy knowledge sharing and capacity building.
The P2P Network Pilot application is open to municipalities and local governments. A circular economy framework has the potential to help local governments meet commitments to nurture a low carbon and prosperous future for their citizens. Applications are open until April 30 and the P2P Network Meetings will begin in June 2021.
