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. »

« 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. »

OVERALL ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE

Design for the Circular Economy

The starting point for a Circular Economy and a truly sustainable development approach is to apply circular design at the design phase. Indeed, 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 systemic state of mind and by deepening the notion of eco-design, from the extraction of raw materials, the use and the end of life thanks to the analysis of the life cycle, you will learn to create the products, services and experiences of tomorrow that protect the environment.

A global reduction of the environmental impacts of the system for green growth

In the recent years, environmental issues, the transition to a circular economy, corporate sustainability and accountability, the management of natural resources and renewable resources as well as to recycle and reuse waste, energy consumption and the environmental footprint have become issues of sustainable development and societal fundamentals.

 

With a holistic approach to innovation and taking the environment into account, it is urgent to stop thinking "business as usual". Action must be taken by integrating Nature and natural systems into all projects, business models and economic activities to create organizations and businesses that respect the environment, biodiversity and the system as a whole.
