Circular Economy Pioneer Arthur Huang Confirmed for #ZWC18

Making stuff from trash and making a difference best describes Arthur Huang‘s career path. The Taiwan-born, Cornell-trained architect is a trailblazer for closed-loop economics, upcycling, and design solutions aimed at accelerating the shift to a circular economy. To aid in these ambitions he formed the pioneering upcycling company Miniwiz – which now operates in Taiwan, Shanghai, Berlin, and Milan. We are pleased to announce Huang will be a featured speaker at this year’s event, Nov. 8-9 at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre.

Numerous awards and accolades have been given to Arthur for his work, including selection as a National Geographic Explorer in 2016, the Financial Times “Earth Award” in 2010 and the Wall Street Journal’s “Asian Innovation Award” in 2011. Miniwiz received the “Technology Pioneers 2015” title by the World Economic Forum, for their leadership and positive impact. He has been profiled in numerous publications and is one of the circular economy pioneers featured in the new three-part documentary series Jackie Chan’s Green Heroes.
