Elen Macarthur Foundation


Reinventing Progress


These materials have been commissioned by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in order to support and stimulate EPQ students who are interested in exploring what might broadly be described as Development – for example, questions relating to natural resources, industry, design, and economics, and to decisions that must be made concerning the future.

Questions relating to Development are proving popular and fruitful for EPQ work and can be explored in a variety of ways, including designing and making an artefact or researching a dissertation.
