TECHNATION Canada has teamed up with Carleton University and Hatch to bring you an exciting National Student Challenge.
What is in it for you?
About the challenge:
Each year, 90 billion tonnes of primary materials are extracted and used globally, with only 9%
being recycled. With the Circular Economy model, we get to enjoy the benefits of safe
packaging without damaging the environment.
The Circular Economy has been identified as a major commercial opportunity and could
support the development of new industries and jobs, reducing emissions and increasing the
efficient use of natural resources.
Final theme and parameters to be announced at the kick off.
