From 2 June to 28 July, every Wednesday, you are cordially invited to 2021 June & July Wednesday Seminar Series on Sustainability and Circular Economy!

A Better World by Design is our motto in Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) that is reflected in our teaching and research. A Better World in the 21st century must include sustainable development and human activities. Sustainability is a complex system-level challenge that requires innovation and collaborations at all fronts. In this online seminar series, speakers from SUTD and international institutions will share recent progresses on sustainability research topics, with a focus on achieving a circular economy. Topics range from the role of design in achieving a circular economy, circularity in manufacturing, our built environment, life cycle analyses and urban metabolism.
