OSCEdays Vancouver 2017, we pivoted to organizing smaller events and groups throughout the year. Each session, we cover a different circular economy topic with a different type of activity, from brainstorming with role play to cycle tours and bulk buying clubs. New events are posted on our Facebook page.
