From Linear to Circular

Updated on 24.01.2023

In this 10-week programme, participants engage in an in-depth exploration of the concept of the circular economy. The programme features expert-run sessions and conversations on the practical application of the circular economy. Participants work on team projects co-designed by the Foundation and companies in their network. The programme is free, with participants selected following an application process.

Organiser:

Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Type: e-Learning

Relevance for Circular Systemic Solutions

In addition to increasing circular economy knowledge, participants have an opportunity to engage with leading circular economy practitioners and expand their professional network. This is a good opportunity for those who are already familiar with the basics of the circular economy and would like to delve deeper into the topic, while also gaining practical experience by working on real projects and challenges. Alumni of the programme also provide mentoring and help maintain a strong From Linear to Circular alumni network.
