To build a circular economy society, we need a broad shift in attitudes and operating methods. Professionals, specialists, and decision-makers will play a critical role in constructing a new world, both now and in the future. Education plays an important role in developing experts. In response to the transition away from conventional forms of learning, International Council for Circular Economy has developed an online self-paced course for AICTE SWAYAM MOOCs platform.
On the 28th of December, Prof. Anil Sahasrabudhe, Chairman at All India Council For Technical Education (AICTE), released the course titled “Linear to Circular Economy”.
