From Linear to Circular : Open to All

Do you want to learn more about the circular economy?

From Linear to Circular: Open to All, is a ten-week online programme, designed to empower the next generation of circular economy leaders and pioneers. The programme is free and anyone can take part.

The circular economy offers a different way forward for the economy, society, and the environment. Today, many businesses operate in a linear way — they take resources from the ground to make products, which we use and then throw away. But this way of doing things is no longer working for businesses, people, or the environment. Underpinned by a transition to renewable energy sources, the circular economy is built on three principles — design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems.

From Linear to Circular: Open to All aims to introduce you to the circular economy. It includes ten webinars led by the Foundation’s experts, featuring guest speakers, question and answer sessions, and interactive challenges.

Join us once a week to find out more about the circular economy. We will discuss topics including circular design, business models, plastics, fashion, cities, and food, and look at case studies. 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.

An existing knowledge of the circular economy would be useful, so please take a look at the learning hub on our website.

The starting date of the next series is not yet known. For future series, please keep an eye on our website, register your interest and sign up for our newsletter.
