Coming Full Circle with Sustainability: A Workshop on Building a Circular Economy in the DMV Region

Join B4B Networking Partner, Leaders in Energy, for a workshop to meet with those interested in developing a circular economy in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) region.  A circular economy is a regenerative system which minimizes or eliminates resource inputs, waste, emissions, and energy leakages.

The workshop will feature a number of initiatives which are nurturing a circular economy ecosystem. Presenters will provide examples of success stories of the circular economy and share their expertise on components of the circular economy including urban farming and workforce development, local business, advanced manufacturing focused on utilizing local resources and labor, ecoindustrial parks, and regional economic development.


In this workshop, you will:

  • Network with those who share a passion for sustainability as a lens for assessing systems;
  • Learn from those utilizing and/or developing circular economy practices;
  • Engage with others in small group discussion on how to expand these practices in business, our communities, and daily lives to accelerate the circular economy;
  • Develop an action framework to further enable the circular economy in our region; and
  • Receive a list of tools and resources on the circular economy.


Early bird pricing is available through Thursday, September 21st.   Rates also available for job seekers and students.  Ticket includes workshop, list of tools and resources, refreshments and light beverages.
