Design has the power to enable systemic change at individual, business and community levels. Join us for this episode as we hear from Malin Nordin, Head of Circular Business Development at Inter IKEA Group, on the ability of large organisations to scale up the 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. through designing affordable furniture. We will be discussing how the circular economy can shift the perception that ‘affordable’ means cheap and poorly made, to one that gives rise to quality design. We will also hear from Emily Pilloton, founder of Girls Garage. Emily promotes design with inclusivity, encouraging economic development for all with emphasis on the importance of exercising voice and power, bringing communities together.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation works to accelerate the transition to a circular economy. We develop and promote the idea of a circular economy, and work with business, academia, policymakers, and institutions to mobilise systems solutions at scale, globally.
