Lisbon CommUnity Kick-Off – Circular Economy

Online event

Every year, the Lisbon CommUnity organizes a Kick-off Event to provide the new InnoEnergy Master’s students at IST with the chance to meet their peers, fellow Alumni and introduce them to potential employers.

This year, we join the Portuguese Society of Ecology to celebrate the Ecology Day. An online session addressing Circular Economy will take place at the beginning of the new academic year. Sustainability is a major driver to boost the circular economy.

The online session includes an introduction to CU and its local and topic communities. Then, the Portuguese Zero Waste Lab organization that acts on circular economy projects around the country is invited to present their projects and to highlight the importance of circular economy for the future. Several InnoEnergy Alumni who are building their careers in Circular Economy will participate in this event and share their experiences. A Kahoot Session will take place at the end of the session.
