Student Workshop: Master Circular Economy in Half a Day, an Action-Packed Training by Circulab Founders

Your students and academic leadership are increasingly seeking high-quality content on topics such as climate change and regenerative circular economy. Navigating through the ocean of publications and TED talks, it can be challenging to pinpoint the most relevant content.

In the face of prevalent pessimistic arguments like 'It's too complicated, and it's too late anyway!', there is an urgent need to provide serious, educational, and inspiring content to raise awareness about the benefits of a circular economy.

Embark on a global exploration to spotlight concrete examples exposing the glaring flaws in our current models. Then, confront these examples with the seven pillars of the circular economy—a consciousness-awakening experience delivered by Brieuc Saffré, Fabrice Sorin and Justine Laurent, founders of Circulab and speakers at institutions like Polytechnique, HEC, ESSEC, and ENSCI.

In just a few hours, your students will comprehend the impacts and drawbacks of current economic models, identifying the economic, social, and environmental advantages of a circular and resilient economy
