Take part in a free circular economy online course

In June, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation will launch the first open online course on the circular economy. The course is free to attend, and will provide an initial introduction to the circular economy framework.

Who’s it for?
The resources and topics covered will interest teachers, lecturers, students, designers, entrepreneurs and engineers – anyone interested in the circular economy.

When is it?
The course runs for four weeks, from 10 June – 5 July 2013

What’s involved?

Access to the course online platform on Canvas
A weekly menu of recommended reading, videos, links
Circular economy discussion forums
Live webinars with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Team
mentoring from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Team.
No examinations or minimum time input – learn what you want, when you want

Why is the Ellen MacArthur Foundation running this course?
This course will be a pilot, intended to find out what works and what doesn’t when learning about the circular economy online. The Foundation is interested in the concept of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), a disruptive trend that is enabling large-scale interactive education around the world.

How much does it cost?
True to the principles of a MOOC, this course will be free.

What next?
If you’d like to participate in this course, just register your interest below. When we launch in June, you’ll receive an invitation to the online platform.

Re: A great women with a message to all of us: Ellen MacArthur - Learning & The Circular Economy

Dear colleagues,

In a cMOOC-discussion a came across a nice plain language introduction to the concept of a circular economy, I would like to share with you (attached article in UK's Permaculture Magazine's Summer 2011 edition):

"I think it's a fantastic plain language introduction to the concept of a circular economy and provides nice illustrations of how the concepts can be applied in both small scale and community-wide systems. ... Check it out."


Regards,
Detlef
