Circular Design is a fundamental enabler for organisations to transition into the circular economy. It delivers desirable, feasible and viable solutions that design out waste and pollution from the outset, keep products and materials in use for as long as possible and regenerate natural systems along the way.
In this workshop, you will work in a cross-industry and multi-disciplinary environment to learn about a new business paradigm, understand how circular economy unlocks value across people, planet and business and practice circular design.
Mixing theory, circular success stories and practical application, you will deep dive into what circular economy is, explore a range of industries at a systemic level, identify current challenges and impacts across people, planet and profit. You will use practical tools to re-design products, processes and business models in a circular way. Finally, you will identify what needs to be done to move into implementation.
