The Ellen MacArthur Foundation has launched a new digital learning hub to help individuals better their understanding of the circular economy.
Dame Ellen MacArthur broke the world record for sailing solo around the world in 2005, a record that she held onto for three years. Following her retirement from professional sailing, she launched the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to help businesses and individuals to accelerate the transition to a circular economy around the world. The foundation also works together with governments, research facilities and educational institutes.
Now, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation has launched a new digital learning hub to help individuals better their understanding of the circular economy. Using curated learning paths and real-world examples, the learning hub tackles question such as: What is the circular economy? What can I do within my business? How do I describe what the circular economy is to my colleagues, friends and family? Topics such as fashion, cities, artificial intelligence and food are all explored through a variety of multimedia content, according to a press release.
“Our new, open learning hub is designed to help individuals who can effect change in the world to build their own personal understanding of the circular economy, and begin to apply this knowledge to their work,” says Jules Hayward, Learning Lead at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. “Everyone can be part of a growing global community that enables our world to thrive by creating unstoppable momentum towards a circular economy.”
