online | 25th of June 2020

Are you wondering what the real benefits are of a circular economy? Do you know what the required steps are for circular economy implementation in various settings? Or which tools are available to track circular practices in different environments?

The Consulate-General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Toronto and Canada Circular Hotspot have created a 5-part webinar series called “Making the Circular Economy Real” with topics ranging from Urban Centers, Buildings and Construction, Food, Circular Procurement and Plastic Packaging.

The first webinar will take place on June 25, 2020, at 1:00 –2:00 PM(EST)





This first webinar, themed “Cities going Circular” will focus on urban centers and how they apply circular concepts to their systems, services and solutions. We will hear from Circle Economy in the Netherlands and the City of Toronto.

  • the different tools available to design and track circular practices in municipalities.
