Quote from the Activity Leader
WhyincorporateCircular Design and Circulareconomyintotraining? At both a European and National level, policymakers are increasinglylookingbeyond the currenttake-make-waste extractive industrial model. It requires us to redesignproducts, business models, and the linearsystemsthat have lasted for the past centuries. The CircularDevactivitycovers the role of design in creating a circulareconomy, uses a circular design process for incorporating the principles of the circulareconomyinto business model designs. CircularDevtargetslearnerswhowant to developskills in circulareconomy and circular business models and are willing to have the capabilities and create the opportunities to become change makers for more sustainablecircularmanufacturingresponsibility in theirfield.
