WMAA is hosting the ENVIRO’18 Convention from the 13-14 June 2018 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Following China's recent change of policies towards the importation of recyclables and the desire to improve its own manufacturing base, Australia finds itself at a crossroad. This is the opportune time for Australia to adapt its policies and thinking towards a Circular Economy.
ENVIRO’18 is an opportunity to bring together leaders from business, government and academia to learn from and discuss the experience of government and businesses overseas, to ensure that the transition to Circular is as seamless and well informed as possible. We all know that the current linear ‘make-take-waste’ approach is no longer viable and that we need to change the way we design, purchase, think, use, and produce the goods of today, in order that they can be the resources of tomorrow.
Over two days we will hear from international experts and national leaders who have embraced a new way of thinking and can demonstrate how commercial and environmental gains can be achieved by its implementation and why it is vital that government take a leadership role in this transition.
