Programme:

The 12 day weekend programme will include hands on making workshops, a visit to a recycling depot, teardowns and opportunities to pitch and present your ideas to industry experts. There is also cash up for grabs to develop your prototype product and test your business.

Lunch is supplied and help with transport costs if needed.

The programme runs in Dover and Sheppey in 2017 and Gravesham in 2018 and we hope to create the first youth Circular Economy Network in Kent.  

No prior experience or qualifications needed, if you are:

  • Interested in art, design, drama, dance

  • Interested in event management, public engagement, activism

  • Want to use creativity to tackle social problems, improve your community, help the environment

  • Want to start a business or develop a product

  • Are interested in entrepreneurialism or a career in the arts

The Circular Economy is a vision of a world where both the making and using of products wastes nothing. It offers an alternative to the traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) and aims to keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life.
