This one week programme in Oxford has been created by the amazing Ellen MacArthur Foundation. They are experts in the “Circular Economy” - a new vision for the way we run the world, using our “waste” materials as resources for new products - just as the natural world does! This is such a simple idea and it can be applied to most items we want in our lives, from jeans to toothbrushes. If we redesign our cities and our systems for manufacturing and transport, we can create new jobs, reduce costs, and give ourselves a cleaner world. What role will you play in the Circular Economy - designer, engineer, farmer…? Everyone’s career and life will be touched by this new approach, and we need leaders with vision and energy to make it happen.

You will work with the education team from the Foundation, bringing your own ideas to designs for future cities. Come and get involved in the debate, and find your place in the future of stuff. Open to students aged 15 - 18 years. Follow on with the Sustainable Fashion Course to explore the Circular Economy further.
