It's my first time to join an online course on Coursera and it's an amazing experience! The course mentions about many different aspects on circular economy, from chemistry, business models, policy making, environmental impact assessment, etc. I learn a lot from those diverse teaching materials. And I really got inspired by the case study this course provided every week! Through the examples that actually happened around the globe, I believe circular economy is feasible and promising! I really appreciate Lund University and all the other people and institutions who plan and form this course. The investment on this course is certainly worthwhile!

This course is designed in very well structure: from raw material extraction, to manufacturing process...with real examples, cases to make learner understand the topic from different angles/ perspectives. It ends by raising a lot of questions about how we can change this current fast consumerist culture and how to encourage sharing economy, how to get manufacturers get more responsibility to prolong product life, i.e. repair , upgrade, how to get government involve with the right legal frameworks...It's a challenging topic and pinpoint that we can not win the global challenges without global collaboration in many layers

Very good MOOC, I found it very useful and practical. THE trends that come from now on to maintain business models that are sustainable over time and a constant circular economy. The most important and which is a great challenge, is to transmit the acquired knowledge because not only the companies will have to adjust to these new models, but also the final consumers, we will have to make substantial changes in habits to help our plant, and secondly, innovate, to help reuse materials in the best possible way. Thank you very much and congratulations for providing excellent knowledge.

The course is awfull! We learn the key points about circular economy and how minerals, speacially the scarcer ones, need to be circularized to garantee the necessary stocks for modern life speacially for countries in developing. The chapter one seems a little confuse because it speaks about circular economy and extraction of metals in a separated way. But the other chapters make all expected links. Methodologies to embbed circularity to business model, and methods to assess the environmental gain in changes and even to pitchs.

In 2020, the world is expected to have 10 billion people. How can we ensure that there will be sufficient resources around for humanity to enjoy the standard of living we have right now? This is my first MOOC and I really enjoyed it- it shed light on the increasing burden on our ecosystems, but also the steps we can take for the development of circular economies, which can generate value to society by ushering in a new era of sustainable economic growth. The content covered is really relevant and interesting!

The course was accidently given by my Company, Saudi Aramco. First, i thought, it is not my field. But after hearing the videos, it is understood that it is highly a good requirement in the new world of destructions!. I have really enjoyed the topics and i have gained knowledge and got some confidence to do something in this direction of re-cycling. Thank a lot. I would like to interact with some of the technology entrepreneurs, who are doing the re-cycling of electronic products--- firstname.lastname@example.org

I enrolled in this course to learn what circular economy means and how we can implement such concept in industrial areas as well as our daily lives. The course contents are enriching and the presenters are very good overall. I definitely learned a lot about circular economy, and this course has had a great impact on me in such a way that I have already adopted the the "circular economy" way of thinking. I highly recommend this course for anyone who is interested enough to catch up with the fats-evolving economy.

I loved the topics. It was such a holistic view of a circular economy from the extraction of raw materials, to societal change needs to become increasingly circular. The case studies are great and the extra reading material were great references to continue learning about this topic. The fact that some of the research papers referenced came from Lund University, Leiden University, Delft University made me feel this course was very prestigious with the right information from the brightest minds.

Excellent Course For Sustainable Materials Management. Course also looks at where important materials in products we use every day come from and how these materials can be used more efficiently, longer, and in closed loops. In addition to providing many cases of managing materials for sustainability, the course also teaches skills and tools for analyzing circular business models and promotes development of your own ideas to become more involved in the transition to a Circular Economy.

The course provided a good base in different areas like materials, business models, government policies and keeps the student interested throughout. One suggestion is that this could be an 6 week course and have the student idea or project as a mandatory part of the course. I enjoyed doing the course and learnt a lot even though I am already reading a lot about circularity. The additional resources and reading material are very informative and interesting. Thank you !

This was my first experience with e-learning, which is to say I have not previously enrolled myself in any COURSERA course.
I am very satisfied since I have learnt far more than I would ever imagine to be possible.
I would like to thank all the mentors/teachers for great delivery, easy-to-follow structure, and invaluable pieces of information.
I am confident that I can put all the learnings from this course to great use throughout my future professional career.

Very detailed course content, and interesting because of variety of presenters, both from universities and industries
Course was well set out and easy to navigate
Suggestion: Video of interviews did NOT have the interviewer question listed in the text, the question was only shown at the start of each section of video. I suggest that the interview questions be added to the text, for those students that are reading the text rather than watching the video.

Though I was already familiar with the majority of the concepts, the course greatly helped me organise my thinking and I learnt new tools and methods of understanding and developing circular business models.
The course deploys an excellent panel of instructors who make it easy to learn as well as keep you engaged with good content.
I highly recommend the course to anyone interested in a career focused on sustainability and circular economy.

Incredible and amazing awareness course. I strongly recommand it for anyone not knowing a thing on circular economy or even already trained people on the subject. Very conforting in the idea that there are some solutions to a more sustainable world and that we have the keys to put them in place together. The shifting transition has already started, be prepared it's coming, so make the choice to be part of it. It's worth it :)

The course gives a broad overview of the sustainability efforts done globally and locally by industry experts. The course also highlights the importance of collaboration and cooperation of individuals to preserve resources, which will be used by the future generation. Finally, the peer-graded assignments train students how to strategically build a circular business model that can be used by both small and large companies.

Course is designed to perfection, where the knowledge is built up from basic (which is important for someone not from this background) & gets into more detailed learning.
The assignment & assessment are designed to test the logical thinking & also thorough reading.
Discussion prompt were a nice way to share thoughts.
Overall really good course for marking a good way further & build up more sustainable learning.

I enjoyed every aspect of this class. The area of study interest me and the instructors brought forth many new thoughts and ideas for me to think about. It was presented in clear and informative ways. The quizzes were challenging but not overwhelming and the assignments were not time consuming. I appreciated the ability to complete the course in the "audit" mode but given the ability to be graded.

The course is packed with valuable information on the key Circular Economy aspects. It gives the opportunity to learn from video materials of great quality, well selected topics for readings, extra references to go in depth for each subject, project work and tests. I found it very useful for myself and I am confident that I have got the necessary skills to put into practice what I have learnt.

Great knowledge and awareness acquired through this course, with insight on topics like mining or legislation which are not so commonly taught. I was amazed by all the teachers and the clear explanations that were given during the whole courses. Also the real examples of circular economy are really inspiring to develop this practices yourself! Thank you for making this accessible to everyone.

It was a very interesting course. A general overview on materials and lots of examples in how circular economy works in practice. From my own experience, my business sector speaks they do a lot on circular economy, but looking at the material and examples in the course, I realize big industrial companies do not do enough into circularity, environment and sustainability.
