VCA Activator Community Meet Up – Who's Circular in our Community?

Meet people breaking ground and doing amazing things in circular economy. A VCA, RMIT Activator and RMIT Sustainability Week initiative.

The circular economy represents an exciting new lens for change. We know circular practices can drive outcomes and make a huge difference in the way we think about sustainability.

But what does it look like when circularity is used in business? And who are the people creating circular economy solutions RIGHT NOW?

Join us and find out, by connecting with the people driving circular innovation from RMIT's community of researchers and founders under the Victorian Circular Activator:

  • Hear pitches from founders building businesses grounded in circular methodology and try their products in a fun, collaborative environment
  • RMIT researchers, engineers and more creating specialised circular solutions will share in their journey to commercialisation or further research
  • We'll provide refreshments to kickstart your day, served with plenty of food for thought
  • Come along to make connections in the circular community, from RMIT and beyond
