All over the world the best design and creative minds are dedicating themselves to waste and how to get rid of it by transforming the way we design, use and dispose of stuff. The Circular Economy is a new way of looking at the resources we use in order to minimise waste, detoxify it and transform it into valuable and restorative resources for us all. This briefing paper will give you a better understanding of the Circular Economy, and how you can apply its principles in your areas of work, from artistic practice to day-to-day operations in organisations.

This is the first of a series of Arts Council-funded innovation briefings - they are intended to demystify, educate and inspire and will cover a range of environmental and sustainability topics.
