  • Speakers Info about who's talking

How we think shapes the world around us, and our ways of thinking are formed through our learning. If we are to adopt a new economic model like the circular economy, we all need to go through a learning journey to explore, understand and ultimately apply a concept that requires new practices and a significant mindset shift.

At the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, we have spent a lot of time supporting people to shift their mindsets. Our Learning Team's work covers schools, universities, businesses and informal learning. Tune in to this session to find out more about what we do and why we do it.
