LEARN HOW TO HELP DESIGN A FUTURE THAT WORKS BETTER FOR ALL OF US WITH THE CIRCULAR CLASSROOM TOOLKIT
Discover the power of systems thinking, learn all about sustainability, and enhance your creative problem solving skills to help build the circular economy with our interactive in-class videos and learning modules.
The Circular Economy offers all of us the opportunity to redesign products and services so that they are more sustainable, equitable, and effective at meeting our humans needs without creating negative consequences to the planet.
Moving away from the current linear model to a circular model, learners will interact with three main learning modules: Sustainability, Systems, and Design and Creativity. High-energy videos and beautiful downloadable workbooks for classroom activities support these modules, while a suite of educator support materials provides additional resources as part of the complete Circular Classroom Toolkit.
Dr. Leyla Acaroglu specifically designed and developed these interactive resources in consultation with upper secondary Finnish educators and students to support the active discover of the necessary thinking and doing tools for a future career in the Circular Economy.
A range of interactive classroom activities plus enrichment homework opportunities within the easy-to-use workbooks, along with short engaging videos, activate the discovery process through collaborative and experiential learning. In turn, a new generation of creative, circular thinkers develop the thinking and doing tools necessary to design a sustainable, regenerative future through the Circular Economy
This is all about co-creation. We encourage you to work together with your fellow educators and students to develop new activities and multimedia content on how you have applied this approach in your school. This will help activate more positive change globally!
Send us your videos, your feedback, or your ideas for extra in-class activities, and we can incorporate them into the suggested materials or share it with the world using the hashtag #circularclassroom
The Circular Classroom Program has been co-created with forerunner educators and students
