Environmental Education Center hosts webinar Tuesday

The Environmental Education Center, located at Regents Row A116, will host a webinar screening from 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Tuesday about the "Circular Economy."

The circular economy is more than minimizing waste generation. It is a "cradle to rarely reaching the grave" approach to the economy and human activity. Circular economy concepts rest on comprehensive approaches to closing loops, thus transforming our linear extract-make-use-dispose economy and reducing human-kind?s use of Earth?s assets as well as minimizing natural and social system impacts.

Earth's resources are large but finite, and human population is growing, so something has to give to converge on an acceptable quality of life for living on the planet. For more information, contact joni newcomer at 575-646-7563 or newcomer@nmsu.edu.
