First Circular Economy Symposium at Harvard

On March 6, 2020 the inaugural Circular Economy Symposium was held at Harvard University. An initiative of a team of graduate and undergraduate students from several Harvard schools and supported by two faculty advisors (Nabil Harfoush from the School of Engineering and Carrie Snyder of the Extension School), the events attracted participants from 40 countries. The event was sold out for in-person attendance at the Tsai Auditorium in the Center for Government & International Studies. Close to 400 virtual participants watched the event live stream on the internet.

Details of the Symposium’s agenda, speakers, resources etc. can be found here. It was preceded by a broad range of activities, under the title Symposium+ across Harvard’s campus to increase awareness about circular economy, ranging from the board game In The Loop (played at multiple schools), guest lectures, and movie screening, to panels and round tables.

The symposium proceedings were video recorded and the recordings will be made available soon on the Symposium’s site.
