Apply to be part of a unique and free circular economy learning programme

Are you at the start of your career, a postgraduate student or an emerging innovator? Apply to be part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s unique, free-to-learn programme designed to enable its participants to become pioneers of the circular economy.

Built around an immersive four-day workshop in London this June, the programme brings together a global community of circular economy practitioners to learn through collaborative team projects and to increase their knowledge and skills through in-depth, expert-run sessions. It combines the opportunity to take part in a programme developed based on the experiences of the Foundation and its network, and the chance to expand your professional network and engage in with active circular economy practitioners including members of the CE100 business network.

The programme is made up of three distinct phases.

Online collaboration phase – an initial six-week phase where you will connect with fellow participants, form small teams, and start working on a project, while receiving mentoring support.

Immersive workshop phase – running 10th-13th June in London, this workshop delivers in-depth sessions, facilitated by experts with dedicated space for collaborative projects which stimulate peer-to-peer learning. On the final day of the workshop, you also join the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s 2019 Summit, which brings together our international network to explore latest trends and circular economy thinking.

Circular economy pioneer phase – join our community and start to define your path as a circular economy practitioner.

Potential applicants are asked to fill in a short form and to create a short pitch video. More information and where to apply can be found on our programme page, applications close on 31st March.
