Contribute your ideas to the Circular Events Challenge

From setting up to cleaning up, there is an opportunity every step of the way for circular strategies to improve the impact and legacy of high-profile events and conferences. Organisations around the world are already playing their part: from edible cutlery and biodegradable food packaging to harvesting rainwater, urban farming, and take-back schemes- countless case studies have inspired and energised us as we worked on formulating this challenge, and we hope they spark your imagination and inspire you to submit your own ideas to the platform.

Sponsored by Circular Glasgow, an initiative of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, the challenge is a global call for ideas on how the circular economy can enable local businesses to drive positive change in the events industry. Anyone, anywhere in the world - regardless of field or level of expertise - is welcome to submit their ideas starting today until March 28. Together with partners Zero Waste Scotland, Scottish Event Campus and the Glasgow Convention Bureau and Major Events team at Glasgow Life, Circular Glasgow will be supporting the implementation of winning solutions locally and sharing learnings along the way with our online community.

Circle Lab is an online platform for cities, businesses, and citizens to explore, brainstorm, and implement circular business models and strategies to tackle universal and local challenges. By digitising knowledge, opening up access, and encouraging co-creation, we aim to break down information silos and fuel cross-industry collaboration and innovation. The circular economy has the potential to change the world, and we believe the time to bring the concept to the kitchen table – so that everyone, from entrepreneurs to big brands, can play a role in making it a reality – is now.

Circular Design Class - For Self-Employed Designers

Featured image

How can you, as a creative professional, contribute to the development of the circular economy and generate new business for yourself? Join our upcoming CIRCO Circular Design Class to learn how! During this one-day workshop, you will be trained in the field of circular design and learn how to apply it to your work to create circular products and services.

De inhoud van de Class is gebaseerd op het onderzoek en boek “Products that Last” (TU Delft, 2014) en de daarin beschreven businessmodellen en ontwerpstrategieën. Deze worden toegelicht door de auteurs: associate professor Conny Bakker en senior researcher Marcel den Hollander. Er komen verschillende inspirerende praktijkvoorbeelden langs van koplopers. De circulaire businessmodellen en ontwerpstrategieën passen we toe op jouw situatie. Op basis van de principes van ‘Products that Last’ maken we nieuwe concepten voor bestaande producten en diensten van jouw bureau.

Om je nieuwe inzichten toe te kunnen passen in de praktijk, moet je je opstellen als een change agent voor circulair ontwerpen. Daarom krijg je in het laatste deel van de Class ook inzicht in hoe je in jouw dagelijkse praktijk circulair ontwerpen op de agenda van je opdrachtgevers en collega’s kunt krijgen.

Datum

1-Daagse Workshop CIRCO Circular Design Class - 21 september 2017 (Voor zelfstandige ontwerpers)

Deelnemers
De rest van de Classes in 2017 zijn voor in-company designers, designers in de bouw, interieur en architectuur. Bekijk de agenda voor de komende edities. Het maximaal aantal deelnemers van elke editie is 15.

Kosten
De deelnamekosten bedragen € 100 excl. BTW per deelnemer.
Dit gereduceerde tarief wordt mogelijk gemaakt door het Ministerie van Infrastructuur en Milieu.

Workshop trainers
De Classes worden geleid door Siem Haffmans (Partners for Innovation) en Simone Gager (Circle Economy).
