The LEGO Group will co-host an online event for 13 to 18-year-olds with the Ellen Macarthur Foundation to teach them about the circular economy.
The session will be streamed live for one hour on May 18 on the Ellen Macarthur Foundation’s YouTube channel. The Foundation aims to accelerate the transition to a circular economy and has already led a number of events on the topic.
This event, ‘Building a better future: exploring the circular economy with LEGO bricks’, will be hosted jointly by the Foundation’s experts and members of the LEGO Group team, focusing on the importance of using creativity to switch to a circular economy. It promises to teach a new way of designing and using things in a way that’s better for humans and the planet.
Although the learning session focuses on using LEGO bricks, young people can still take part without them, using paper, card, string, or other household materials to get creative and take on the challenges assigned within the session.
This is not the first time that the LEGO Group has collaborated with the Foundation. Back in 2020, the company committed to the charity’s goals towards a more sustainable future.
Parents of children aged between 13 and 18 will need to sign a consent form in order to sign up to the event. You can find more details about what to expect from the live stream on the Ellen Macarthur Foundation’s website.
