About - Long Description

The training aims to help people from businesses and organisations understand the principles behind circular economy and more importantly, learn to deliver activities using circular economy tactics. This will help businesses and organisations become more efficient, save costs and reduce their impact on the environment. The training is intended to change the way people operate by being more aware of their resource use, waste generation and energy use, and create deliverable action plans to operate in a more ‘circular’ way.

Background

Climate-KIC is delivering circular economy training as part of its drive to create a prosperous, inclusive, climate-resilient society founded on a circular, zero-carbon economy. It is focussing the training in places where Climate-KIC is already working in to bring varied partners together and direct circular economy actions on particular climate challenges relevant to the area. The circular economy training will compliment other approaches to tackling climate change, as well as increasing knowledge and awareness of new approaches within its existing partner network.

What we offer:

The training is delivered by experts in the circular economy from the local training areas.  It will be workshop-based and includes tutored presentations, case studies from practitioners delivering circular economy and group discussions to reflect on new ways of operating.

The training will provide links to other tools and resources to help participants create their action plans.  A resource pack of all training materials and presentations will be available for participants.

How to identify worthwhile circular economy approaches (Blocks 1 and 2)

Day 1 - 11th February 2019

The first two blocks create an understanding of what circular economy is, why it is necessary, why it offers opportunities for businesses and how it applies to the participant’s sector. Circular economy innovation is an approach to find new and innovative business opportunities that also produce environmental and social benefits. Many case studies will be provided to inspire the participants and show them how similar organisations have delivered circular economy.

Blocks 3 and 4 provides participants with insight into implementing circular solutions. They will hear inspirational stories from practitioners that relate to this, as well as analysing barriers and enablers. This allows the participants to understand how to identify key actions for further improving and detailing high level circular economy strategies.  It teaches participants how to develop circular economy solutions that are relevant to their industry.

Practical Information:

The only issue is finding free parking lots, in case of coming with personal cars or traffic jams sometimes. Therefore, enough time should be allocated for solving this.
