Ellen MacArthur Foundation

The Ellen MacArthur Foundations goal is an education which sees the challenges of a resource-constrained world as an opportunity to innovate and accomplish remarkable things in the redesign of our industrial systems.  It is about a changed education perspective first and foremost – moving from an emphasis on ameliorating the effects of the ‘take-make- dispose (linear) economy’ to the search for virtuous cycles of economic development (the ‘circular economy’).  It is about a design philosophy, about how we produce and consume and how we enable the transition to a prosperous, beneficial and restorative economy and the skills, innovations, technologies and systemic changes which will be needed.
