Master Circular Design

· new online training course ·

80% of the environmental impacts of any product or service is determined during the design process

This statement brings to light the utmost importance of including a circular mindset at the very start of each project, when the product of the service is being designed.

The design team as well as all the people involved in the project at this point must anticipate all impacts and risks of the product or service, before, during and after its use. Therefore, taking into account every aspect of the life cycle.

Today, more than ever, it is crucial to stop thinking in a linear way and find solutions to the real-world challenges. And there is a way!

We can build and rebuild applying systems thinking and circular design

For the last 10 years at Circulab we have helped businesses, entrepreneurs and administrations to design with circular economy principles. We have created methods and world-wide proven tools.

Now, we want to reach out.

We wish to spread our knowledge further and help many more get started with circularity.

Why? Because the more people trained to circular design leads to more positive impacts and therefore a real influence on the way designing is done.
