The world’s first circular strategy training simulation is launching in Germany!
At a multi stakeholder event in Munich all interested corporates, consultancies and academics should be enabled to experience the brand new training tool. At the event, participants can explore the experiential learning that The Blue Connection offers and how it can bring value to their company, become part of their portfolio or university curriculum.

The program will be a circular economy masterclass. The simulation experience will be complemented by keynote speakers from the field who will give insights into circularity in the real world and share their expertise. A very interesting keynote speaker will be Wilhelm Mauß, Managing Director of the German company LORENZ, which is producing water meters in the south east of Germany. They are a midsize family owned company, which has received many awards for its digitalization and circular economy solutions.

Furthermore the circular economy department of AUDI AG will provide us with insights into the corporate perspective of the circular economy. What are the opportunities? What are the challenges? And what role does the circular economy have in AUDI’s strategy?

Join us on May 7th at the gate Garching in Munich, Germany to experience the opportunities and challenges of the transition from a linear to a circular business model first-hand!

The event is free of charge and you can already register here:
