We work with Australian schools, businesses and community groups to raise the awareness and adoption of Circular Economy principles through our online education experience.
The world has finite resources. Metals, coal, gas, and oil are not limitless, unlike our appetite for them.
Our current model of dig, process, use, and chuck is by definition unsustainable. Something must change!
A Circular Economy is an alternative model that anticipates and designs for biological and technical 'nutrients' to be continuously re-used at the same quality, dramatically reducing our dependency on sourcing new materials.
Now we need to educate the next generation to understand, value and implement a Circular Economy.
That's where NAME come in...
The Circular Economy
This video from our friends at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in the UK says it all (in less than 4 mins!)
Provide the framework for Circular Economy champions and practitioners to inspire and nurture the next generation.
This is how we do it...
We arrange for passionate, informed, and engaging people like Tim Silverwood from the Take 3 project to speak to school assemblies and to run workshops with students about environmental challenges and the Circular Economy model.
The inspired students are encouraged to continue exploring and applying Circular Economy principles in their own time through a series of fun, innovative, social, hands-on activities that are tailored to their situation.
Participating students are rewarded with prizes and experiences related to their online experience at Circular Economy principles.
We're sending our inspiring Circular Economy champions into schools to offer the experience to 14-16 year olds. We're starting local (Sydney and NSW) with big plans to expand Australia-wide.
Our team works closely with schools to customise the online experience for each school.
And everything is FREE!
We want you to become a partner so we can help share your experience and inspire the next generation.
We're an eclectic bunch of volunteers from different backgrounds and all corners of the world, united by a passion for protecting the environment through education and action.
If this sounds interesting we'd love to chat. We're pretty enthusiastic about this so you've been warned!
