The Ellen MacArthur Foundation has launched an immersive Learning Hub to help users explore the concept of a resource efficient circular economy, including deep dives into fashion, food and design.

A circular economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution from goods and services, keeping products and materials in use for as long as possible, and regenerating natural systems.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation has led on several global initiatives to support the circular economy, including the New Plastics EconomyCircular Fibres Initiative and Circular Design Guide for businesses. 

The new Learning Hub is the latest tool made available to help businesses learn about the circular economy, including deep dives into:

  • What is the circular economy?
  • The circular economy in detail
  • What can I do within my business?
  • How to make a circular economy pitch in your organisation
  • Circular design
  • Food
  • Fashion
  • Cities
  • Artificial intelligence.

‘Unstoppable momentum’

Jules Hayward, learning lead at the Foundation, explained: “Our new, open learning hub is designed to help individuals who can effect change in the world to build their own personal understanding of the circular economy, and begin to apply this knowledge to their work.

“Everyone can be part of a growing global community that enables our world to thrive by creating unstoppable momentum towards a circular economy.”
