Waste is known as an unwanted resource. But is that fair? Perhaps it is simply in need of a creative movement, set to change perception about the way we use, deal and think about our most common by-product.

In this take, make and throw away world, we’re constantly surrounded by stuff and things and more things and more stuff. Quick easily, and without thinking, our casual collections become waste – a finished coffee cup, an old phone or an unwanted gift from grandma. Waste runs so rampant in our everyday, it’s now become invisible.

The Circular Economy is flipping waste on its head by presenting new ways to look at resources. Instead focusing on regenerative design, ‘Upskill to Upcycle’ brings together leaders of this movement to present their thoughts, innovations and skills to inspire conscious individuals and communities to do the same.

Through this energetic and thought provoking session, participants will learn a new set of design rules, where creative ideas change perspectives and inspiration is proved to come from the most unexpected places.

During the Masterclass Workshop, meet the makers who are creating and bringing this new way of design thinking to life and work with them to develop new, innovative solutions.
