How do we all contribute to designing a future that works better for all of us? By transitioning our products, businesses, governments, and communities to a circular and regenerative future by design. We can all see the system failures of a reductive and linear approach to meeting human needs, so now is the time to use our creative capacity to challenge the status quo, to design products and services that maintain and increase value over time, to create a post-disposable future, and to activate a positive contribution to this beautiful planet we all share. This forth handbook in the Make Change series by Leyla Acaroglu defines the key tools of Circular Systems Design, systems thinking, life cycle thinking and product service systems models.

WHAT YOU GET

HOW TO ENACT CIRCULAR AND SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

WHAT IS THIS E-BOOK ALL ABOUT?

We are all part of nature and the systems that sustain life on Earth are complex, interconnected and dynamic. We can see the systems failures of a reductive and linear approach to meeting human needs,
so let’s use our creative capacity to challenge the status quo, to design products and services that maintain and increase value over time, to create a post-disposable future, and to activate a positive contribution
to this beautiful planet, we all share. 

The future is undefined. It is made up as a result of the actions of agents (like you) within the system, so anything is possible. The more you discover systems thinking and embrace a creatively disruptive approach to participating in the world, the more you will gain autonomy over the opportunity you have to participate with purpose and make change in the world around you.
