Are you a maker, designer, or creative entrepreneur interested in finding new sustainable solutions for your design practice? Register you interest to take part in Ellen MacArthur Foundation's workshop on circular strategies at the Design Museum on Monday 3 December.

This event is part of Circular Futures Lab, a new programme developed in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to support a more positive and circular future for the making and design sectors globally.

In this workshop, you will redesign an everyday product by reflecting on the functional and emotional needs that it serves and using the circular design approach to brainstorm new solutions that considers material flows and help cut down waste.

You will be joined by six creative practitioners from Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam who have been selected to take part in a week-long programme of workshops around circular design challenges.

Circular Futures Lab is developed by the Creative Economy and Architecture Design and Fashion teams at the British Council, in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
