The Dutch Week of the Circular Economy (15th to 19th January) is an annual celebration of the opportunities of the circular economy and a chance to inform more people on how to get involved. Events will be taking place across the Netherlands, and Metabolic will also be announcing a number of new circular projects and programs during the week. To enable more people to join in, Metabolic is hosting two masterclasses from its suite of educational programs at a discounted rate. Spaces are limited so book fast.
Metabolic Masterclasses have been developed to help us more rapidly achieve our mission of building a sustainable economy. Our Masterclasses provide the knowledge and skills to understand and act on the most fundamental principles of sustainability. Led by our expert consultants, the half-day classes combines both theory and practical elements, backed up by live case studies, and they have been designed to ensure participants can start applying these concepts immediately.
During Week van Circulaire Economie 2018, we are holding two Masterclasses, both on Wednesday 17th January. The masterclasses are held at Metabolic Lab, our playground of applied sustainability at De Ceuvel in Amsterdam.
Designing the Circular Cities of the Future:
9.30am, Wednesday 17 January
The class will provide you with the skills and theories on how to design, develop and implement the circular cities of the future. Relevant case studies such as De Ceuvel, Schoonschip and Circular Buiksloterham – projects that Metabolic has helped pioneer – as well as landmark lessons from the wider world of sustainable city thinking, will explore the design principles in practice. A crash course on the principles and theory of urban metabolisms and circular city development.
Building Circular Food Systems:
2.00pm, Wednesday 17 January
Taking you through the food system and helping you apply the lessons. We use our own experience, such as developing polydomes, aquaponics systems and a food forest, to highlight living examples and pitfalls of urban agriculture. And we share our experience working with cities, regions and industry leaders on developing transformative strategies around food, as well as our in-depth analysis of the global system. Learn from the experts about the root causes and how systems can guide us to alternative and resilient agriculture practices.
