About this Unit
Traditional linear consumption patterns have placed considerable load on available natural resources. The lack of comprehensive mitigation strategies has motivated local and international efforts around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs 2030) to finding resolutions towards making the world more equitable, sustainable, liveable and with opportunities for new sustainable businesses. Students will choose an existing product and apply the principles of the UNSDGs and Circular Economy to create a proposal and prototype to improve upon its current design. Throughout this process the students will consider product usage, durability, bio-ingredients, the product lifecycle, community impact, and sustainability.
