CPD Certified: Circular Economy for Food Masterclass

CPD Certified: Circular Economy for Food Masterclass

This masterclass discusses the circular economy as a framework to fundamentally rethink today’s take-make-waste food system. Diving into the key principles of the circular economy, the session unpacks innovative ways to apply them through circular design for food: an approach for businesses to reimagine everyday food offerings and their packaging to generate positive results for people, nature, and farmers alike.

The take-make-waste food system demands systemic solutions that go beyond incremental ‘do less harm’ approaches. The circular economy offers a common framework to rethink products, services, and systems to actually create good. 

By the end of this masterclass, you will understand how to apply circular economy solutions to food and packaging and how you can start to put this thinking into action, at scale.
