Circular Creatives!!!

Empowering Creative Circular Entrepreneurs aims to upskill creatives and aspiring creatives AND those who train them (VET educators) to embrace circular economic principles as a key tool to adapt their business to a more sustainable model that reduces costs and waste while protecting and creating jobs.

A shift towards the circular approach is necessary, inevitable and a superior source of value creation
Jamie Butterworth

The circular economy gives us opportunity to build a system that can run in the long term, and the time is right for it to reach scale

By working together, we will reach a quicker roll out of this new teaching with more authenticity and flexibility. The ECCE resources as a complete professional training package are robust enough to yield different results across the different countries of each partner, making them adaptable to their needs and the needs of creative entrepreneurs and VET organisations all over Europe.
