Through ongoing workshops and seminars for art students, circular design thinking concepts and ecological sustainability are openly explored and expressed. The aim is to allow the students to discover their own interest within these topics and to subconsciously generate their own methods for ecological sustainability within their practice. Some of the assignments are designed in manner that the students start with questioning the types of materials they use or could use, where they source the material from, how they use it and what happens when the experiment is finished.
