- The course aims to provide students with a rich understanding of the merits and challenges of transitioning to a more resource-efficient and circular economy.
- Drawing from multiple disciplines, including engineering, management and sustainability sciences, students gain knowledge on underlying principles and visions as well as theory and tools that support the formulation and assessment of resource-efficient and circular measures.
- By exploring real-world examples, students synthesize and apply the knowledge gained.
After completion of the course the student should be able to:
- Describe historic and future projections of natural resource use and associated sustainability challenges
- Describe visions and underlying principles of various approaches to resource-efficiency and circular economy
- Critically discuss the implications of increased resource-efficiency and circularity for sustainable development
- Account for actors, their options, barriers and drivers for transitioning to a more resource-efficient and circular economy.
- Account for resource-efficient and circular physical measures, their potential benefits and limitations
- Formulate strategies towards increased resource-efficiency and circularity based on relevant theories, methods and tools from multiple disciplines.
- Assess strategies towards increased resource-efficiency and circularity based on relevant theories, methods and tools from multiple disciplines.
- Communicate orally and in writing the knowledge and skills acquired.
