This Masterclass has been jointly developed with the University of Exeter (a Pioneer university in the Ellen MacArthur Foundations's network) and supported by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. It is designed to enable professionals in the water sector to understand, implement and derive organisational value from the circular economy principles.
As a senior leader in the water and environment sector, you are required to respond to the challenges that arise and create opportunities during your organisation’s journey to a Circular Economy. The Masterclass moves beyond theories to help you understand and apply value creation, capture and scaling. It will develop your professional practitioner skills to deal with the implementation gap.
