New York City and the Circular Economy:

The role of Higher Education

This workshop brings together New York Universities to discuss the role of Higher Education in the city's circular economy transition.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation would like to invite up to two members of staff from your University / College to join us for the first round table workshop to bring together New York's Higher Education sector to discuss the role of the sector in the transition to a circular city.

The transition to a circular economy requires us to transform the way we create products, services, and systems, and this is necessarily dependent on how individuals, teams, and organisations learn to understand, apply and create circular solutions in the real world. The higher education system presents a unique opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and mindsets needed to transition to a circular economy. 

As part of their efforts Ellen MacArthur Foundation have developed a Higher Education Accelerator program, which will place the adoption of circular economy as a critical agenda item within higher education institutions.
