Sustainability and Circular Economy
The purpose of the workshop is to familiarise students with sustainability and
circular economy - two future challenges. The class will enable students to take
sustainability into account in product development, to know about the future
challenges and encourages them to bring in their own ideas.
We will start the course with a general introduction, and then move over to the
practical aspect how to include sustainability in the process of product
development. During our company visit, students will learn how to incorporate
the issue into a company's philosophy to offer ecological buildings. We will also
look at what has already been achieved in Europe and what the future
challenges to solve are. By the end, we will develop and pitch ideas for companies together.
In each class, the hands-on courses are led by experts from practice who support the students in taking a global perspective on the challenges ahead.
