This new MOOC Técnico course, Circular Economy 101, is the result of a collaboration between 3drivers and Instituto Superior Técnico, sponsored by Fundo Ambiental. This online course, open and free of charge, explains how the circular economy is our opportunity to shift towards a regenerative and resilient model with a new economic paradigm. The circular economy seeks long-term economic and ecological value by designing out of waste; keeping materials and products at the highest value possible for the longest time possible; and ensuring that these become nutrients for new cycles of value once they reach their end of life.
This online course is targeted to university students with any background, with the aim of enhancing learning about circular economy and its different dimensions, allowing them to develop the necessary skills to make a transition to a circular economy.
The course will be held in Portuguese and English in order to attract students in Portuguese-speaking countries.
