The Circular Design Leaders are a group of engaged design leaders with a circular economyA systems solution framework that tackles global challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. It is based on three principles, driven by design: eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials (at their highest value), and regenerate nature. agenda.
They work with organisational leadership to implement circular design, empower design and innovation teams by sharing examples, tools and resources and communicate circular design and progress made to the global design audience.

Speculative Design Sprint 2022
In September 2022, the Foundation’s Circular Design team, together with IDEO, met with 16 Circular Design Leaders organisations at the CY Design School in St. Germain-en-Laye for a three day speculative design sprint.
During the sprint, the group explored what the future design function within a circular-ready organisation would look like.
