What is
MAKING DESIGN CIRCULAR?

A membership community and online learning platform in which you get to feel proud of contributing to a thriving planet with every product you make.
Join MAKING DESIGN CIRCULAR and leave the weight of guilt and duty at the door. Bring your whole, imperfect, nuanced, contradictory self and we will meet you where you are. Find alignment with your values, reignite your curiosity and creativity, and connect with a supportive and empowering community of fellow travellers. 

Cultivating Hope

The first step towards making a difference is believing that we can. But staying optimistic in the face of an increasingly bleak news cycle can be really hard. Cultivating Hope is a *free* three-part mini-course that will help you to move through feelings of helplessness, reconnect with nature and take aligned action in the face of the climate crisis.

The Seed

Once you're ready to take action, the question is what action to take. Over the course of 4 x 90-minute sessions, we will explore the unique contribution that you, and only you, can make to environmentalism. We will find the tiny problem that you can solve – and have fun, play to your strengths and make a living doing it. Self-paced, live digital and in-person options available.

Membership

Once you're on your sustainability journey, you need a map and a band of fellow travellers. The 5-Stage Path to Sustainability provides the route, and is underpinned by inspirational guest speakers, group coaching, and a community of likeminded souls. Bring your whole, imperfect, contradictory self and we will meet you where you are.
