What is currently wrong with our current “take make dispose” linear economic model? Would it be relevant to get inspired by Nature’s 3.8 billion years old R&D department? Can we apply principles from natural ecosystems to our current industrial model?
The life cycle game is a serious game helping us understand the flaws related to our current linear economy. When comparing the conventional linear approach to natural ecosystems, we get a first glimpse of how a circular economy could operate if its principles were fully implemented.
The game can be useful to introduce the concept of circular economy to non-experts or beginners. Through the use of an example, it introduces the 8 principles circular economy is built upon.
It is a relevant ice-breaker to test out the knowledge of teams starting their transition journey to the circular economy.
