The Circular Economy within the retail sector is a complex and diverse challenge, but also provides a wealth of exciting opportunities for design and innovation. This has prompted Cranfield University and the University of Exeter, two pioneer universities of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, to collaborate on a two-day hackathon event exploring ‘Circular Retail’. This video showcases the journey and outcomes developed by the students from each institution and presents their newly conceived circular retail ideas.
