To develop circular economies of food production, energy conservation and material reuse, while empowering people of all backgrounds to make their cities healthier and more efficient.
What is a Circular Economy?
In a circular economy, conventional waste streams from one process are repurposed as inputs for another, creating a circular, closed-loop model of material reuse.
What We Do
We equip people and businesses with the tools to live more sustainably through community-driven, hands-on programs and innovative tech demonstration projects.
