Becoming a circular region requires systemic transformation, engagement, and action from all stakeholder groups in the local ecosystem.
This image shows a simplified model of how our ecosystem is organised. In the tightest circle, we have the transition brokers and backbone organisations. They help bring various actors together and facilitate collaboration for circular outcomes.
On the next level out, we have engaged actors. These are organisations across a broad range of sectors that are interested in circularity outcomes at different degrees of maturity. On the outer circle is the broader ecosystem who have varying levels of awareness and engagement in circular transition.
The Hunter JO, as a backbone organisation, supports and enables local circular initiatives as project partners and collaborators with funding from the NSW Government.
An important group to acknowledge, is the Hunter Central Coast Circular Economy Facilitators Group (CEFG). Their work has been instrumental in kickstarting and driving circular momentum in the region.
This group was established to:
