Circular Design Thinking

Business Models for a Circular Economy


An inspiring workshop using the Circular Design Thinking Toolkit

Imagine a restorative and regenerative economy by design.

Learn how to limit the extraction of raw materials and waste production.

Recover, redesign, reprocess and preserve value in a systemic way, over and over again respecting nature's cycles.

WHY CIRCULAR ECONOMY?

As the economy grows, we need more raw materials for the production of goods and we produce more waste. This is not a problem as long as the economy is relatively small compared to our natural ecosystem. The natural ecosystem is both the source of raw materials and the “sink” for our wastes.

But today, our economies have become so large that we have to question the wisdom of extracting ever more raw materials and dumping more and more waste. This current economy of "take-make-use-dispose" is called the linear economy. It is not a sustainable model.

The Circular Economy, in contrast, aims to radically limit the extraction of raw materials and the production of waste. It does this by recovering and reusing as many of the products and materials as possible, in a systemic way, over and over again. The Circular Economy is a "make/remake – use/reuse" economy.
