Towards a Circular Economy

Access a website which contains a wide range of teaching resources covering numerous topics associated with the circular economy created by the CDT students.

This website includes an array of teaching resources including simple to follow lesson plans, with fact sheets and classroom activities. The second half of the site includes practical activities which can be carried out at home with commonly available household materials.   

The resources on the site cover topics such as life cycle assessment, textile recycling, the problems with e-waste and an introduction to the biobased economy, amongst others. The resources are mainly aimed at GCSE students, with all the lesson plans linked to the curriculum. However teachers are encouraged to adapt the resources to match their requirements.

The resouces can be accessed here.
