About the Circular Economy e-Learning Programme
This platform has been created by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to provide access to the new Circular Economy e-Learning Programme. This is a scalable, capacity building, online learning tool, which offers an introduction to the circular economy by delivering the key messages in just a few short modules. The programme includes multiple case studies, tangible examples and is self-directed so learners can tailor it to their time schedule.
The content is divided into five sections: an introductory overview module showcasing the value of a circular economy in just over 30 minutes, along with four 15 minute modules which address the functional business areas of R&D, Supply Chain and Procurement, Marketing, and Strategy and Finance.
The interactive and visually appealing programme has been created using an award-winning authoring tool and describes concepts using beautiful imagery, rich animations, audio narration and videos including a bespoke video message from Ellen MacArthur. Individual learner journeys can be tracked while challenge questions can earn achievement badges which serve as additional incentives for engagement
