Join our Circular Economy Teaching and Learning LinkedIn Group to discover and share a range of teaching and learning approaches, curricula, and resources for a circular economy.
Interactive resources for curriculum development - designed to encourage discussion, clarification, and reflection within the context of a circular economy.
Co-created by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and IDEO, the guide introduces users to circular economy concepts and circular design thinking techniques. It is centred around 24 methods, as well as interviews with designers, worksheets, illustrative circular innovation case studies, and links for helpful technical tools.
It was developed and piloted with multiple stakeholders, including academics and students from our university network; Stanford University, University of Sao Paulo, Cranfield University and the Royal College of Art.
Many of our academic partners are already integrating the guide into their curriculum. Over the next 12 months we will be sharing their reflections and thinking, in a series of case studies.
