This is the focus area for you if you want to explore these questions:

  • How can we go beyond our recycle-compost-landfill approach to create a closed loop of goods and services in which nothing goes to waste?
  • How do we reduce our demands on the natural world by using recycled and refurbished raw materials and products.

Topics might include:

  • Food systems and food choice
  • Consumption
  • Policy and legislative work
  • Current data
  • Innovation in zero waste systems

    Join us for a community event to envision a circular Boulder!


    BOULDER: A CIRCULAR CITY

    Imagine a city that functions like an ecosystem. No waste. No impacts. Self-sufficient. Resilient and regenerative by design. This is the idea of a circular city, a concept that goes beyond incremental improvement and aims for a holistic and fundamental rethinking of the way we do things. Circularity is catching on globally and here in Boulder we are also committed to making a circular transition, but we need your help in visioning what this transition should look like and how to take it forward in a way that improves our city for everyone who lives here.


    JUST HOW CIRCULAR IS BOULDER NOW?

    Over the past few months, the City of Boulder and Metabolic have been working to develop a holistic picture of how circular Boulder is, where the current resource system is resulting in key problems or hot spots, and where there might be opportunities for closing material, energy, or water cycles locally. During this event, we will present the results of our work so far, introduce you to some of the exciting initiatives taking place around the world, and then work with you to create a vision for how this can work for Boulder.


    HOW TO PARTICIPATE

    You are welcome to join our visioning event on November 13th to help co-create the vision which will be published at the end of the year. However, if you are unable to attend and would still like to be involved, let us know! We will create a way for you to contribute outside of the event as well.
