Our mission helps realise this regenerative vision by empowering every Victorian to: experience their life through a circular lens; develop their own journey to circularity; activate their local circular ecosystems.

In support of our mission, CEV designs, develops, and delivers a variety of education, collaboration and action-oriented programs. All programs are brought to life in a highly collaborative manner with a diverse and growing list of project partners.
