This course is about how everyone of us can live a more sustainable and respectful life

It is absurd to continue believing in infinite economic growth on a planet with finite resources. The only possible solution for a sustainable future is to change from a linear economy (based on taking, making and wasting) resources to a circular one (based on closing

loops of resources in the production and consumption of goods). Since nothing can ever be “thrown away” this course explores how to buy, use and dispose of commodities in an ethical and sustainable way. “Going green” has to be far more than a short-lived marketing trend.
