Hunter Circular Library

Growing circular economy knowledge in the region

Knowledge sharing and learning from our peers is key to ensuring our collective efforts are maximised. 

This is a library that connects Hunter Circular’s past and foundational work with key external resources essential for the development of the circular economy in the Hunter and Central Coast region.

By leveraging the exceptional research and work that has been undertaken both within and without of our region, we are able to ensure that our transition to circularity is rooted in best practice systems thinking.
