#MakeItCircular Hackathon

Join us this year where university-level sustainability students and world-class advisors are partnering to develop and implement circular strategies for local businesses and New York City agencies. These strategies can be focused on mitigating waste, finding operational efficiencies, and boosting growth.  


The #MakeItCircular Hackathon is part of Circularity Day NYC, an event that celebrates the potential of New York City to become a leader in circular urban strategies and a proponent of the circular economy.
