The Design for Circular Economy
April 19, 2022 @ 1:50 pm – 3:00 pm UTC+8
This lecture is a part of the Global Open Courses initiative, launched by Tsinghua University). Unlike the Fall 2021 edition where every lecture of the eight courses will be made available, the Spring 2022 edition will only be making 1-2 lectures openly available to the public (this is mainly because of the misaligned academic calendars across universities globally).
This lecture is a part of the course, “Theory and Practice of Sustainable Design”. The theme of this course is the design for circular economy, which will mainly focus on the three fields of food, fashion and toys. Circular economy starts from analyzing the material flow and energy flow of products, pays attention to the specific problems in each link from raw material acquisition to waste disposal, and improves the unit efficiency of material energy through reducing, reuse, waste recycling and other methods.
Time: April 19th, 13:50-15:00, Beijing time (GMT+8)
