This powerful learning solution enables students or professionals to transform a virtual company from a linear to a circular business model in an aligned way. They will get to apply multiple business models and experience the relationship between value proposition, circular strategy, and cost & revenue models.
The circular economy is fundamentally different from this linear system. Instead of throwing away our products after use, the circular economy strives to eliminate waste by designing it out and treating waste as a source of materials. And this goes beyond recycling! It is about understanding how we do business and what we can change to save our precious world.
This learning solution is powered by The Blue Connection, and it is all about developing a circular strategy in an aligned and profitable way!
The programs are usually designed for three audiences:
Participants can either:
(1) Be certified as a trainer in higher education (free of charge)
(2) Be certified as a trainer (which costs 350 EUR / 400 USD).
