Using Systems Thinking Tools for Circular Economy Design

Learn to tackle complex, multifaceted problems with systems thinking for high impact business outcomes.

About this session

Either the future of our planet adopts a circular economy, or there may not be a future for our planet since the circular economy could also unlock $4.5 trillion worth of economic growth.

The rethinking and reinventing of deeply entrenched, resource-draining systems require systemic change—and the systemic thinking behind it.

In this workshop, we learn to apply systems thinking to tackle complex and multi-faced problems such as building a sustainable business whilst tackling climate change.

By the end of this class you will be able to:
  • Understand the concept of systems thinking and how to apply it to complex problem-solving.
  • Make connections between sustainability and design to build sustainable businesses.
  • Apply the tried and true circular economy design strategies that will future-proof our world.
This class is for:
  • Team leaders or managers who want to learn the essential tools of business thinking.
  • Business leaders who are building sustainable businesses and want to remain profitable in the long run.
  • Anyone who wants to do their part in saving the planet.

FAQs

There are so many webinars. How is NewCampus any different?

We’re not a webinar. Nor are we an online course. NewCampus is a community learning experience—interactive, intimate and energising. You are not listening passively, you will be actively getting involved. Our sessions are designed so that you actually get to interact with both the speaker, but also more importantly with your new peers. They will be your future collaborators, clients and co-founders. 

All our learnings formats—workshops, mentoring sessions, tiny conferences, dialogues and more—are designed with these principles in mind. There will always be a chance for you to share ideas in a small group, practice newly minted skills and get real-time feedback.

What do I need to join this session?

A stable wifi connection, a quiet well-lit corner and some headphones. After confirming your spot, you will receive instructions in your email about how to join this session via Zoom. You will also need to be ready to switch on your laptop camera and microphone to interact with your fellow colearners, who will need to be able to hear and see you.

Who attends NewCampus?

NewCampus works best for:

  • Business, technology and creative professionals looking to rise up, lead and be a part of shaping their industries.
