Circular Design: Case Ecodesign Sprint​

Ethica collaborated with Design Forum Finland to develop the EcoDesign Sprint for SMEs and design agencies as part of the EcoDesign Circle project.

Ecodesign Sprint is a three-day holistic training and acceleration programme based on circular economy thinking. It is an intensive and strategic programme focusing on identifying new circular business opportunities as well as providing a concrete and rapid service/product development process furthering the company’s strategic goals.

Ethica has developed the Sprint programme and tools, and to date has facilitated Sprints in Finland, Sweden and Estonia. The participating companies range from construction (Lumir) to packaging (Nefab), outdoor and indoor furniture (Nola), food (JärkiSärki), clothing (R-Collection) and camping equipment (Primus). The collaborating design agencies are Pentagon Design, Muotohiomo, Arctic Factory, I Design, MI/KL Studio and Them.
