This course is aimed at helping design professionals such as product architects and industrial design engineers to make their products more circular. By learning how to use unique methods and tools, you will be able to assess the circularity of your product, and to make informed decisions – from minor tweaks to a complete redesign. This course addresses emerging standards for circularity (such as prEN45554) and will be of value both to those working on improving existing products and those creating new ones.
This course is for anyone who is interested in learning why food is essential in your daily life. Your daily food choices do not only affect your health, but also have an impact on our planet. For example, how much land, energy and nutrients are needed to produce various foods? And which pollutants are emitted to the air and water while producing these foods? To address such issues, you need to understand the complexity of food production systems and to be able to critically evaluate their environmental sustainability. In this course you will learn to apply the principles of systems thinking to food production systems, particularly in relation to their environmental impact. This knowledge is essential if you wish to engage yourself in developing environmental friendly food production.
