As the world's population grows in size and wealth, both our collective demand for packaging materials and the waste we generate from them will increase dramatically. At present, large amounts of packaging waste escape formal collection and recycling systems and end up polluting the environment. In addition, their material value is forever lost to the economy. The MOOC Sustainable Packaging in a Circular Economy is about how we can improve packaging systems to exploit this wasted potential. In this course, participants learn more about the design of sustainable packaging systems.

This Massive Open Online Course is made possible by Stichting Verpakking & Milieu
The necessary energy transition requires many more well-trained engineers than technical universities and colleges can supply. Open and online education is available and affordable for many people, including those who do not have access to high-quality higher education or professionals who want to pursue this theme further.
Stichting Post voor Postacademisch Technisch Onderwijs (PATO) is committed to promoting technical education among professionals. Over the past 8 years, the PATO foundation has substantially contributed to the preparation of engineers for this necessary energy transition in the field of Solar Engineering (Photo Voltaic systems), Zero Energy Building Design and Sustainable Aviation. The first two online courses have even won the prestigious edX Prize as the most innovative ‘learner centered courses’ on the edX platform.
