Following on from the huge interest in the From Linear to Circular workshop in Atlanta, we are now opening applications for the London version of the programme.
This programme is the third of its kind and is aimed at postgraduate students and professionals. It will be hosted in London for the second time from 15th-18th June. Candidates have until 8th March 2020 to complete their applications to be considered.
The programme involves a six-week online phase. During this stage, participants work in teams on collaborative projects, whilst connecting and sharing ideas with peers through regular online webinars. Following this, there will be an immersive workshop in London, which takes place from the 15th-18th of June. Experts from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and our wider network, will attend and facilitate in-depth sessions. Working face-to-face will also provide participants with the opportunity to expand their professional network and engage with circular economy practitioners, such as the Foundation’s CE100 network.
As the next generation of circular economy pioneers, you are a key part of the solution. Guided by a regenerative and restorative mindset, your creativity and leadership will contribute to the mobilisation of a new industrial system.
Andrew Morlet – CEO, Ellen MacArthur Foundation
After the completion of the workshop, participants will join the community of Ellen MacArthur Foundation circular economy pioneers, where they will participate in accelerating the transition to a circular economy through utilising their knowledge, skills, and networks.
I feel part of a larger community that reminds me every day that I’m not alone in spreading the word of circular economy.
