World Crafts Council Europe (WCCE) in collaboration with Making Design Circular (MDC), is pleased to announce the launch of a new mass open online course (MOOC) Circular by WCEE x MDC with Katie Treggiden on circularity and sustainability, and 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. Participants will also improve soft skills and acquire the new perspectives required to be part of the 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, free of charge, from August 2023. Places are limited!
The course is delivered in English with closed captions, downloadable audio lessons and text transcripts. Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.
Although mainly geared towards the cultural and creative sectors, everyone is warmly welcome to take part!
