Co-construction of a local understanding of the circular economy: vision, assessment and governance in Saint-Hyacinthe
The project examines the CE vision, governance and practices at a municipal level.
It focuses on three key CE sectors: food, energy (including transportation) and waste (Keblowski et al 2020). Two key research issues are raised:
- How do stakeholders understand CE as a concept and what is their understanding of CE practices and assessment in a city and region like Saint-Hyacinthe?
- How is CE governed and practiced by different political and social stakeholders?
The questions will be explored from the perspectives of the concepts of the socio-technological vision and the governance of the socioecological transition.
