CAS Circular Literacy

An important approach to reducing CO2 emissions in the sense of the net zero target is provided by circular models. Creative thinking and practice - from art to design to architecture - is also experiencing a paradigm shift here. The CAS Circular Literacy introduces specific fields of sustainable design and imparts the necessary current competences and skills. Based on practical design and critical reflection, the CAS offers important insights into circular concepts, the resource-saving use of materials and constructions, principles of the circular economy and the handling of life cycle assessments.
