A new, interdisciplinary degree with the Edinburgh Futures Institute The circular economy is a way of thinking, researching and acting on climate change. A ‘circular economy’ means moving away from the world’s current, predominantly wasteful economic model where resources are extracted, manufactured, used, and discarded to one where waste is designed out and products and materials kept in use for as long as possible. Beyond the need for design innovations, a circular economy also means investigating how to change the way we consume and use goods and services, both locally and globally. On this interdisciplinary programme, you will have the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge of circular economy in order to support communities, businesses, and policymakers to create a more sustainable and equitable future. The core courses will focus on both practical and theoretical approaches to: the fundamentals of a circular economy, including foundational literature and concepts designing for a circular economy the circular economy business perspective the evolving field of circular economy responsiveness to the climate and environmental crisis You will be able to shape your learning to meet your own interests and objectives, particularly through option course selection and your final project.

This programme is aimed at recent graduates and early- to mid-career professionals from across the globe, and from a wide range of backgrounds and skill sets. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, you will be able to explore and nurture your ideas for disrupting the status quo and rethink how we currently design, make, and use resources in the world.
