This month, you can learn more about the circular economy solution to combat the crisis in waste management by attending lectures in Collingwood on the subject.

The Georgian Triangle Lifelong Learning Institute is presenting its winter course starting Jan. 13, with talks from experts in the circular economy field.

The series begins with a presentation by Jo-Anne St. Godard, the executive director of circular innovation council (formerly the Recycling Council of Ontario) since 2001. Godard recently spoke at COP27 in Egypt during the conference to coordinate global climate action initiatives. This Friday, she will speak more about the ways different products can be shared, repaired or returned to their natural state.

She will also address the harmful impacts of an “extract-make-use-discard” economic approach.

The other five lectures in the six-part series will feature talks on the circular economy approach from the textiles, technology, food, plastics, and mining sector.

The lectures take place at New Life Church on Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon, and can be purchased to watch at home. The cost of the series is $60 per person.

Georgian Triangle Lifelong Learning Institute is a volunteer-based organization offering university-level and expert speakers’ series on a wide range of topics.
