Who is this for? What is it?

Based on the work of Real Circularity and its recent Academy, this evergreen course is for inter industry. Sessions work with you on the distinctions within our work and practice that flow through any industry, the working practice of applied ‘Sustainable Circularity’.

For those that want to work on Circularity from within their current role, consulting, freelance position or if you are starting a seed business and want to get ahead. Wherever you are, gather a fuller understanding of working theory into reality with Real Circularity Fundamentals.

For Those in Design, Procurement, Technical, Planning, Project management, Product Development, Consulting, Architecture, Marketing …  literally any professional wanting to add Circularity to their toolkit or students wanting to deepen their knowledge.

Practical application and pragmatic working application in all scenarios, from product, to operations, systems, development and the collaborations that you can foster from within your current role and position.

What if you didn’t have to move roles to work on your purpose?

What if you could enhance both your depth of knowledge and showcase to your bosses how you could apply it?

Be innovative from within your work, be more employable, keep up with the newest trends and ideas – share knowledge with others who are passionate about creating change and transforming industries.

No paperwork, no messing about, just purely how you can take this complexity and apply it in real life to your work. We recommend Journaling throughout and writing ideas, asking questions in the portal and community.
