Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Salon: Disruptive innovation

The security of our global future is dependent on a less wasteful and linear economy. But how can we disrupt and innovate today's economic system?

 

We do not really have any choice. It is time to use our collective intelligence to redesign our way of working into a 'circle economy'. - Robert-Jan van Ogtrop, founder of Circle Economy

The security of our global future is dependent on a less wasteful and linear economy. But how can we disrupt and innovate today's economic system?

Join us for an interactive and engaging event about re-imagining the future of our products in a circular economy. Participate in engaging exercises, witness innovative examples of creative re-use, and solve some of the most crucial problems of a wasteful economy. Become a disruptive innovator and explore the economy through a different lens.

Facilitated by Susan McLaren, Senior Lecturer in Design & Technology, the University of Edinburgh.
