What is the Ellen MacArthur Foundation?
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation works with business, government, and academia to build a framework for a circular economy.

Underpinned by renewable energy, the three principles of a circular economy are based on designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems.

Creating a future that’s more inclusive, diverse, and distributed
The Foundation appreciate that “art and culture play a vital role in the creation of a future that is more inclusive, diverse, and distributed”.

They say,

“We’re looking to discover the links that connect a circular economy with artistic expression.”
