We’re running a seven-week interactive online programme, From Linear to Circular: Open to All.The programme is free and anyone can take part. The programme will start on the 28th October and will run until the 11th of December.

From Linear to Circular: Open to All aims to introduce you to the circular economy. It includes:

  • Peer-to-peer learning and interactive challenges in a vibrant online community
  • Seven webinars led by the Foundation’s experts, featuring guest speakers and question and answer sessions
  • Seven recap sessions where we together with the participants reflect on what we have learned each week.

Join us to find out more about the circular economy. We will discuss topics including circular design, business models, plastics, fashion, cities, and food. You will also be given a small piece of homework each week and have the opportunity to engage with other participants in our community space.

Some existing knowledge of the circular economy would be useful, so please take a look at the learning hub on our website. The programme starts on Wednesday, 28th October, and the online webinars will be broadcast live at 4pm GMT each Wednesday.
