There is an opportunity for students and young professionals to receive a complimentary pass to this summer's Circularity Conference in Seattle. The Circularity Emerging Leaders program aims to elevate, cultivate and support the next generation of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) leaders in the climate community. Its goal is to foster a community of sustainability professionals that is diverse and representative of the world in which we live.
The Circularity Conference brings together professionals building the circular economy. "To build a just, resilient world that operates within planetary boundaries, we must transform our systems, structures and strategies. It’s time to unlearn linear systems. It’s time to move from extractive to regenerative. It’s time for the circular economy."
The Emerging Leaders scholarship covers registration fees, airfare, lodging, and meals at the conference. Applicants must reside in the U.S. or Canada and be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate or graduate student, or be an early-career professional (age 21-29). Applicants must commit to attending all three days of the conference on June 5-7 in Seattle, and submit a short testimonial about the experience after the event.
Applications submitted by March 13, 2023 will receive priority consideration and submissions will be accepted through April 10, 2023.
