Building Indiana's Circular Economy for the Next 200 Years***
March - December 2016

We will explore the best strategies, local initiatives and the social, technological, business, community innovations that support the transition to a circular economy in Indiana.

We believe this is the first initiative of this kind in the US, at a state level, so we are proud to make Indiana a showcase for the successful mainstreaming of the circular economy, as we celebrate our bicentennial. Let’s begin the next 200 years in Indiana’s history with resilient and prosperous local communities all over our state.
