Affordability and inclusion: designing for a circular economy

Design has the power to enable systemic change at individual, business and community levels. Join us for this episode as we hear from Malin Nordin, Head of Circular Business Development at Inter IKEA Group, on the ability of large organisations to scale up the circular economy through designing affordable furniture. We will be discussing how the circular economy can shift the perception that ‘affordable’ means cheap and poorly made, to one that gives rise to quality design. We will also hear from Emily Pilloton, founder of Girls Garage. Emily promotes design with inclusivity, encouraging economic development for all with emphasis on the importance of exercising voice and power, bringing communities together. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a UK charity working on business, learning, insights & analysis, and communications to accelerate the transition towards the circular economy.
