"How can we most effectively educate and skill-up our organisation to transition towards a circular business model?”

Learning for a circular economy requires theoretical understanding and continuous development of critical practitioner skills to address the most common circular challenges in businesses.

A simple framework guides the curation of our learning portfolio. The triangles below show two important components of learning:

2. PRACTICE: Alongside the theory, build critical practitioner skills to take you from a beginner to an advanced level.
