New York City and the Circular Economy:
The Role of Higher Education
This workshop is convened and facilitated by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. It will be an interactive event that brings together representatives from colleges, universities, and associated organisations in New York to discuss how the sector can better engage with and support a circular economy agenda.
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.
Live from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Headquarter.
