Design for a Circular EconomyKeynote

Our current way of producing and consuming has no future. We extract raw materials from the ground, turn them into products then throw them away. This system is accompanied by a lot of pollution, losses and scarcity of resources. To address this, you can design for a circular economy. In a circular economy, products, components and materials are maintained at their highest possible usability and value at all times.

How do you design electronics in a circular manner? Flora Poppelaars will introduce the principles and design strategies of a circular economy. Discover how you can apply this to your products. You will explore opportunities around, for example, material choices, reparability, recycling and alternative business models. Get inspired and receive concrete guidelines to design for a circular economy!
