About the event

Learn how to adapt and apply service design tools and perspectives to the unique contexts of services designed for the circular economy in this SDN Academy Masterclass.

What to expect?

Faced with concerns about sustainability and waste, circular economy-based services are increasingly offering innovative alternatives to our traditional patterns of consumption. Designing them, however, presents some new challenges to service designers. Not only do their service lifecycles themselves look different, but the value exchanges which take place change over time as well. In this Masterclass aimed at both beginning and experienced service designers, you’ll prepare yourself to discover new opportunities in this exciting and ever-more-relevant niche of the economy.

What are the takeaways from the Masterclass?

This Masterclass will be a mix of theory, hands-on activities and case studies. Attendees will:

Learn the hallmarks of circular economy-based services

Learn and apply related innovation methods

Discover how to adapt and apply service design tools

Hear about case studies where service design has been successfully applied for the circular economy

This class is ideal for service designers, as well as other design and product management roles, working in organizations that plan to, or currently deliver, circular economy-based services.
