LiFE Frameworks: Resource efficiency and waste and Learning and teaching

Today’s economic conditions require a change in perspective. An innovative approach is needed which integrates systems thinking and looks beyond the linear ‘take, make, dispose’ model.

As the first Global Pioneer University for the Circular Economy by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the University of Bradford have designed the circular economy MBA to give the next generation of leaders a first-mover advantage, by tackling subjects including regenerative product design, new business models, reverse logistics and enabling communication technologies.

This webinar, hosted by Peter Hopkinson who set up the MBA, explores the Circular Economy, the MBA itself and presents methods for embedding the key principles into teaching and learning at whatever scale. We will also hear from some MBA students on their experiences of the course and views on the circular economy model.
