1.1 What is circular economy?

Course subject(s) Module 1. What is the circular economy?


So when we talk about the Circular Economy, what is it actually? That’s a good question, and we don’t (yet) have a very good answer. In the video, Ken Webster from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation explains the main challenge of this course.

Can we, together, come up with a short description of the “narrative” behind the circular economy? If you for instance try to explain to your friends and family what a circular economy is, what story do you tell them? What examples do you use? It is these stories and examples we’re looking for.

Together, we can agree on which of these stories and examples work best for us. We hope to see a powerful narrative for the circular economy emerge from this course.
