About the Circular Design Series
Once you start thinking about circular design, it is possible to see everywhere. Consider the Circular Design Series itself, even. Soft launched by SAP in 2018 at London Design Festival, the Plastics Cloud was more of a provocation, aiming to inspire action around the challenge posed by plastic waste.
That evolved into a physical space for dialogue in 2019, created in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. The pandemic curtailed physical engagement in 2020, but supercharged the conversation and launched the Circular Design Project in earnest. The virtual talk series spanned a variety of subjects, from fashion and the built environment, to food design and material innovation.
Going strong two years on, Global Design Forum has now leaped across the pond to New York, with a renewed focus on plastics, and in particular, packaging.
