The Real Circularity Academy now goes into its third cohort, this will be the only virtual live option in 2024 , we have more people signing up ready for our January 17th start.
We are proud of the quality of professionals that have taken the course up and actually it's better to let them speak for us as above.
This is not a course to teach you have to suck eggs - this is real application in context with your career and professional work.
The Real Circularity book has been winging its way out to professionals in the US, UK and EU. It is a quick read for busy people that don't have time to spend the 36 years that Ken has taken to really be a master in this space.. I am certainly a Jedi , my domain knowledge and regenerative application and business models are complimentary to the work that Ken did with Cradle to Cradle.
We have been looking back to the work that we have been creating, co-creating and in our research and have worked on our Circular Earth site to focus in on the things that make a difference to your business more.
We always like to streamline and pivot based on where we see future business going and what will be pivotal both then and now.
Circular design, Systems, New Economics and Research has shown up to be most relevant and that is what we have been doing best.
Have a look around our new site and get in touch if our consultancy or initiatives are within your scope for 2024
The Ecosystem Incubator is a Dynamic space to come together and co-create the future of fashion, for micro brands and players from seed through to store and back again in circularity.
The Ecosystem is now creating or should I say co-creating its first collaborative brands, ideas and initiatives .
The above photo is showcasing our first collaborative brand Sanja Stories, This was featured in London Fashion Week on the Regeneration catwalk show created by Safia Minney and her team. We are inviting the customer to be a part of the journey and work with us on our first run... we are looking for you to create a pre-order so that we can buy the fabrication and then you will be asked to join the community.
The cool thing is that we are going to help you to customise that in the best way to keep the item in the natural cycle and not to add toxins to it, for both wear and for the eventual end. The design is made to encourage longevity featuring adjustable waist and length - as well as modular knees.Featured on Model: Aaron A
