Let's go beyond business and into a circular economy

The transition to a circular economy requires us to transform the way we create products, services, and systems, and is dependent on how we learn and apply those learnings in the real world, as individuals, teams, and organisations.

This course allows participants to understand the foundational knowledge of circular economy (CE), global trends in CE, local policy and legislation that facilitates CE and importantly the mind shift and communication skills required to facilitate the transformation of the economy from linear to circular.

Key Learning Objectives

Demonstrate knowledge of circular economy principles and business models acknowledging the foundational theories (cradle to cradle, biomimicry, performance economy and indigenous know-how and values… and more).

Demonstrate and understand the environmental, social and economic value in a circular economy and the means to which the value can cascade and be shared.

Evidence the ability to practice systems thinking coupled with circular economy principles (circular systems thinking) to identify opportunities to create transformative change towards circularity.

Articulate the mind shift from a linear view of the world to one that is circular. Think, design and do with the end in mind.

Articulate a personal leadership approach that you will use to facilitate more circularity in the complex world in which you have influence.

"This course was fantastic. From learning and unlearning what I had thought CE was to walking away feeling as though I have a well-informed understanding of CE principals and their practical application. This course not only left participants with a practical action plan but also allowed participants to understand their role in the wider CE system."

"Thank you so much to the wonderful facilitators for sharing their knowledge, time and passion."

"It was both a personal and professional learning experience. At times I felt completely outside of my comfort zone and challenged but at the same time very privileged to be surrounded by such a kind and supportive group of humans. Thank you for the opportunity."

"Exceeded my expectations, I loved that it went beyond CE knowledge and theory into how to implement change and developing tangible actions."
