Activating Local Circular Economy Projects using a Global Collaborative Design-Thinking Approach 

about

aRoundTable is a global collaborative initiative to help communities fast track the Circular Economy transition. 

 

Our mission is to help Circular Economy organisations all around the world to drive innovation in their communities, turning ideas into real-life projects.

 

To do so, we have created a circular design-thinking workshop format that brings together local stakeholders to define key problems facing their community and develop actionable circular projects to address them.

 

The process provides a structured, iterative co-design framework to develop and implement Circular Economy projects, products, or services.

In this second session, participants prioritise the most important problems and solution areas to focus on in their communities based on the impact they can create, the effort required, and the key stakeholders needed.

During this third session, participants co-develop and co-design a prototype or pilot project that either enhances existing solutions or creates new solutions, as well as a prototyping plan to develop and test their idea in their communities.

In this fourth session, participants develop an implementation plan to determine the activities, resources, stakeholders needed to implement, scale and expand their projects, and how to connect with decision-makers in their communities and sources of funding to realize their projects.
