Circular Economy in China
As China’s cities struggle to manage the exponential growth of urban waste streams, the need for circular systems where waste is a resource is clear.
Through this event, participants will hear about the potential for entrepreneurs and young professionals about the opportunities to develop businesses and careers that will help close the loop on waste to overcome this challenge.
