Activate the Circular Economy

A course led by Justine Laurent, Brieuc Saffré & Fabrice Sorin

"We must establish the ecological bounds on human activity […]. A different economics is achievable. A better and fairer social logic lies within our grasp"
Tim Jackson , Ecological economist

Our degenerative economic models are tired.

We extract, transform and dispose of resources as if we were living in a world without limits.

The climate and biodiversity crisis as well as the never seen before level of income inequalities are stark reminders of how broken our current economic models are.

The Circular Economy is a promising solution to imagine and design our way out of these interlinked and existential crisis.

This course provides an introduction to the Circular Economy concept.

You will identify the advantages and challenges of a Circular and Regenerative Economy. You will also get inspired and realize how you can activate the transformative potential of the Circular Economy in business and in societies.
