This conference is for participants from all cohorts, their guests, and the MRV community.
Feel free to just listen in, or move freely between rooms to enjoy the MRV Conference your way.
Why does the MRV Conference exist?
You may have heard of a little event called the Vancouver Zero Waste Conference and maybe even have attended it. The conference is now a high powered corporate event with innovating and exciting international and local speakers. Over the years, the cost has risen and attracted a corporate and government attendance, making it difficult for the community to access this culture.
To address this, members of the SPEC Zero-Waste Committee and Master Recycler Vancouver have envisioned offering a conference tapered to the local community rather than to industry. The vision has finally come to fruition in 2020 albeit in a surprisingly different format than originally planned, and that is quite alright! For the inaugural Master Recycler Vancouver Conference, we are keeping things close to home, literally, by featuring our very own Master Recycler program participants as attendees, presenters, volunteers and moderators in an exciting virtual setting.
We are thankful to bring this virtual space into existence with your help and support!
