Learning Material WP5

In the EKFI PLUS-project we will develop Learning Material in the work packages WP4 and WP5.

WP5. New entrepreneurial/management learning material on Circular economy in creative industry


The world faces major challenges when it comes to protecting our planet. More and more people are realizing that the current linear economy, in which raw materials are extracted, used and thrown away, is not sustainable in the long term. Fortunately, a solution is on the horizon: the circular economy.

What is a circular economy?

In a circular economy, raw materials are used, reused and recycled as efficiently as possible. This reduces dependence on finite resources and prevents waste. The goal is to create a system in which valuable raw materials remain in use as long as possible, rather than being discarded after one use.

Benefits for society and the environment

The circular economy offers many benefits to both society and the environment. The efficient use of raw materials allows the economy to grow while reducing the strain on natural resources. The circular economy can also help create new jobs and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

How can we move to a circular economy?

Moving to a circular economy is a major challenge and requires collaboration between government, businesses and consumers. For example, companies can invest in sustainable technologies and modify their production processes to minimize waste. Governments can introduce regulations to encourage the circular economy and consumers can adjust their own behavior by, for example, choosing sustainable products and separating waste.

The circular economy offers a solution to the challenges facing the world. By using resources efficiently, reducing waste and creating a system in which valuable resources remain in use as long as possible, the circular economy can contribute to a sustainable future for all of us.


The reduced supply of natural gas and oil by Russia has accelerated Europe's transition to fossil free energy. There is a boost at the EU level to achieve drastic CO2 reductions and the move to a more circular economy. In the coming years, more information will be needed on these topics, their significance and how to implement them within the communications sector and especially within the print media industry.


Development process

The development of the learning material will be supported by the output of 1 and 2. The development material is in line with the need of schools for these educational materials. The development process is used to test, evaluate and improve the developed outputs before the completion of the project. These results are linked with the priorities because this project enables VET and HE teachers, developers and others to find and involve like-minded peers with the appropriate competences in a development process to develop common learning resources that can respond to developments that require innovation and development of new or ask for changed competences.
