Who are we / Wer sind wir ?
We are Piyush and Elana, German Chancellor Fellows supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation to research the circular economy in Germany. Elana previously served as Assistant Director of Professional Education for the Environmental Law Institute in the United States, and Piyush worked for the German Development Organization (GIZ) in India for five years as National Advisor for Business and Biodiversity.
What will we do / Was werden wir machen ?
This workshop is created for innovators, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs (and sustainability enthusiasts). The workshop aims to teach basic concepts surrounding circular economy, nurture a systems perspective, and share practical innovation methods which participants could apply to their lives and/or work.
We will go through a couple of examples of successful circular business models before splitting up into groups to tackle our own circularity challenges to see how we can make common consumer goods more circular.
Time, Place & Supplies / Zeit, Ort und Ausstattung
The session will last two hours.
We plan use a screen/projector for some slides and photos, if available. Also need handouts, loose paper, pens, and tables for group work.
We would prefer to host the workshop on 14.06.18.
