Future topic – Interdisciplinary – Web seminar at 6 universities in NRW
Creating value instead of throwing it away
Zirkel.Training presents: The idea of sustainable management in cycles
What is it about?
The unchecked consumption of resources in our current economy is not future-oriented. But what do sustainables alternatives look like? An alternative to our wasteful society is the idea of a Circular Economy. Their goal: To hold materials and products in cycle for as long a possible in order to create new value while simultaneously conserving resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The NRW-wide events series Zirkel. Training highlights what this means concretely and from the perspectives of different disciplines. Experts from 6 universities took on stations of the Product Life Cycle (from Design to Recycling) and gave insights into the Research fields. Project presentations from entrepreneurial practice and panel discussions supplemented the scientific impulses.
Be notified when there is a new round of Zirkel.Training
If you register, we will inform you as soon as the Zirkel.Training starts again.
The series is aimed at students of all disciplines at universities in NRW, preferably Bachelor’s and Master’s students; however it is open to all interested parties.
