      What you can expect from the course.

A high-quality 7-day training at 3 inspiring locations

The program consists of 7 training days divided into three blocks. Between these blocks, there is one day of homework, in preparation for an interim coaching session. During the CAP, you are divided into multidisciplinary groups of five participants. In this group you will work on a demand-driven, topical case within the circular economy, using design methods taught through an interactive and creative process.

What is CAP?

The Circular Ambassador Program is an interactive training program where we turn you into a true expert and advocate for the circular economy.

In the circular economy, solutions are often spread across the entire value chain.

Requiring a combination of collaborations, sustainable (product) design, circular business models and processes, that is often complex and requires a lot of convincing. This demands not only knowledge of the circular economy, but also leadership skills to turn that knowledge into concrete action and initiate change within organisations.

In 7 training days, spread across 3 blocks, we will cover the full design process from problem exploration and conceptualisation to implementation. The training days will be spread over 3 months as well as a total of 24 hours of homework. The course will be in English.

The course includes a strong combination of theory and practice. The knowledge and skills acquired are immediately applied to concrete cases from the field. You get the choice to work around one of the current cases from one of the following domains: Bio-economy, Circular building, Chemistry & Plastics, Manufacturing, Food chain, Water cycles.

** With only limited places available, there will be a selection to ensure multidisciplinary teams. You will always be informed in good time whether or not you have been selected.
