The action-packed, three-day event includes keynotes, panels, networking, and fun events. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend sessions on food waste, recycling and zero waste in the construction and demolition sector, building a plastics circular economy, reusables, defining recycling, and the latest from innovators worldwide.

Attendees will gain inspiration and knowledge from our speakers, who are key leaders in the circular economy. We are thrilled to announce our keynote speaker, Peter von Tiesenhausen, a multidisciplinary artist based in Demmitt, Alberta. With over more than thirty years as a full-time artist, his practice has continuously eluded categorization. Peter von Tiesenhausen’s subtle interventions on the land where he lives formed the basis for his famous 1996 copyright claim over that land, a claim which has since protected it from resource exploration by extractive industries and forced pipeline developers to do expensive rerouting around it.

Along with leading environmental presenters from the province, across the country and around the globe, the conference features a golf tournament, regulatory updates, environmental program tours, networking opportunities, a banquet, great food, and much more!

The RCA understands that the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, but we’re planning optimistically with a virtual contingency plan if COVID-19 restrictions do not permit an in-person conference.
