Green and Circular Economy
Place of study: University of Copenhagen
Purpose: The course investigates the business and governance dynamics leading to green and circular behavioural and economic change, looking for the innovative leaders, important future oriented innovations and schemes that have caused a change. Special focus is on the systemic challenges at the industry and urban level drawing in both material/waste, energy and water aspects and their interrelations.
Content: With an emphasis on real life cases, the course cuts across business, innovation, governance, and urban planning perspectives in order to highlight the core perspectives and opportunities of the green and circular economy. The course provides participants with theoretical frameworks, applicable tools, as well as empirical insights into the green and circular economy agendas, and how these have evolved and changed over time. An Action Plan for how to approach a self-defined problem in the home country is a key outcome of the programme.
Target group: Mixed stakeholders at medium management level working to enhance a green and/or circular economy. Ideally, participants from each country should represent a different set of key stakeholders, e.g., different ministries and local authorities, utilities, business organizations and companies.
