The circular economy engages students in one of the most challenging and complex issues facing our global economy: how to move beyond the linear 'take-make-dispose' model of production and consumption to one that is regenerative. By supporting circular economy learning we are equipping young people with the skills, knowledge and mindset needed to build a system that works for society, the economy, and environment.
The circular economy, with systems thinking at its core, is applicable to a range of disciplines. As such, it is suited to an interdisciplinary, project-based approach, emphasising inquiry, collaboration, and creativity.
How we work with educators
Using the latest insights to create high quality, adaptable content to be used in a variety of contexts and settings.
