Discovery Series Keynote Panel: Reimagine Phoenix

We know that pursuing a circular economy is good for the environment and society, as well as the economy, and research has indicated that community-scale development is ideal for implementing a circular economy. Now the big question is "HOW"… How can local governments and their partners take the idea of the circular economy and make it into a reality? The City of Phoenix is at the forefront of circular economy and has started to set precedents that other local governments can use for inspiration. Learn how to take these models and turn them into a reality in your community.
