A Circular Economy is restorative by design. Transforming to a circular economy means enabling creative and innovative approaches to enable new peer to peer sharing models, redesigning sustainable products and business models, utilising new technologies to enable us to keep materials circulating in the system for longer and more effectively, and incorporating renewable energy to generate activity.

In this talk, discover the basic design principles of a circular economy, hear best practice case examples and experiment with 'tear-down' concepts to redesign for a circular economy.
