IDEMC7: Design for the Circular Economy
The Master Class hosts a mixture of interactive tutorials and workshops with the aim of plunging you into the theory and practice of designing for a circular economy. The decision to embed circular economy principles is a strategic business decision; this has a huge impact on the way products are developed and designed. The MC addresses the social and technical implications for product design using examples from practice, and provides design approaches that are embedded in theory whilst being pragmatic and usable for designers.
During this master class, you will learn to:
- understand the systems-perspective needed for the transition to a circular economy;
- understand how design can contribute to a circular & sustainable economy;
- use tools and techniques to implement circular economy principles in design processes;
- reflect on ways to overcome the barriers for going circular.
- Theory and practice of designing for a circular economy;
- Circular product design tools and methods.
Conny BakkerConny Bakker is Professor of Design Methodology for Sustainability and Circular Economy. She coordinates and teaches several courses in Sustainable Design and Circular Product Design. Her research field is Design for the Circular Economy, in particular the design and development of products that are used more than once, and the field of user centered sustainable design.
Ingrid de PauwIngrid the pauw is currently part-time lecturer at the DUT, involved in Bachelor and Master courses on sustainable design engineering, and works at IDEAL&CO.
During her studies she specialised in environmental product development and has been working as a product designer for over 20 years.
In 2015, she obtained a PhD degree from the DUT, for her research on Nature-Inspired Design.
