Circular by WCCE x MDC

15 August, 2023


World Crafts Council Europe (WCCE) in collaboration with Making Design Circular (MDC), has launch a new mass open online course (MOOC) on circularity and sustainability: Circular by WCEE x MDC with Katie Treggiden. The course is geared towards makers, craftspeople, innovators, designers, creatives and stakeholders, both within the cultural and creative industries and beyond.

The main aim of the MOOC is to gain an understanding and awareness of the importance of transforming our current linear economic model (take–make–use–lose) into a more nature-inspired, closed-loop model; as well as enabling participants to gain the softer skills and new perspectives required to be part of that transformation.

Throughout the MOOC, participants will be guided by author, journalist, podcaster and the founder and director of Making Design Circular, Katie Treggiden. Using pre-recorded videos, worksheets, resource lists and self-assessment quizzes, Katie will help you to identify your unique contribution to environmentalism and cultivate a creative practice that nurtures you, your business or activities, and the planet.

The MOOC consists of 5 modules which can be followed online at your own pace and is available to enrol free of charge. The course is delivered in English with closed captions, downloadable audio lessons and text transcripts. Participants will receive a (non-accredited) certificate upon successful completion of the course.

Although mainly geared towards the cultural and creative sectors, everyone is warmly welcome to take part!
