Master Circular Design

« I love it! This training program really helped me have a systemic mindset. Having this mindset helps in critical thinking and can help assess whether or not the solutions proposed are actually better or doing more harm than good. This can also help managers design better business models, solutions and projects that can help address today's very urgent problems. »

Master Circular Design

« I have already recommended it to several others. I tell them it is just as valuable or more valuable than my graduate classes at university. Circular Design will be on the forefront of design and business for the rest of our lifetimes, and has very direct impacts on the quality of life for not only ourselves, but for the entire human population, the environment, and all other living beings. »

Design for the Circular Economy

The starting point for a truly sustainable development approach is to apply circular design at the design phase. The design stage defines 80% of the environmental impacts of a product. To create positive impacts, everything must be designed in a regenerative and responsible way. With a system thinking mindset and by going further than eco-design, considering all stages of products lifecycles, you will learn to create the products, services and experiences of tomorrow that respect the planetary boundaries.
