Large amounts of packaging materials turn into waste and escape formal collection and recycling systems. It eventually end up polluting the environment having a huge environmental impact. Moreover, their material value is forever lost to the economy. How can we improve packaging systems in order to capture this wasted potential?
This 2-course program will help industrial design engineers to rethink packaging design, recover, and reuse.
In the first course, you will explore the basic concepts of the circular economy and their implementation from various perspectives: how businesses can create value by reusing and recycling products; how designers can come up with amazingly clever solutions; and how to apply systems thinking to the transition to the circular economy.
In the second course, you will learn about the design of sustainable packaging systems. You will explore the design and business strategies of the circular economy and how this can be applied to packaging.
If you are looking for ways to upskill yourself and become a designer who not only creates great designs but contributes to the environment through rethinking the packaging of your product – this is the program for you!
