Among the keys to the implementation of the circular economy is the expansion of a highly-qualified labour force with the skills to support it, in addition to the development of new training options, pedagogical approaches and tools that foster the integration of circular economy into current curricula.

Building on its expertise, the RRECQ, in collaboration with CERIEC, has created a massive open online course (MOOC) on the circular economy aimed at individuals in all sectors who want to learn more about the concept.

The course is currently offered in French only.

Register by February 18, 2023 for the next session of this MOOC

Key Dates:
  • Registration period: from December 1, 2022 to February 18, 2023.
  • Course duration: January 28, 2023 to March 11, 2023. The 35 hours of course are spread over 5 weeks during which all the teaching material ( videos, readings, podcasts, quizzes, summary evaluation) is available in free access.

By the end of the course, you will have:

  1. Rethought the production and consumption system to which we contribute on a daily basis;
  2. Reconsidered the linear model;
  3. Explored ways to implement circularity within an organization, sector or territory.

This is an enriched version of the MOOC initially presented between 2018 and 2020 by the Institut de l’environnement, du développement durable et de l’économie circulaire (EDDEC), in collaboration with RECYC-QUÉBEC.

This new edition of the course is a RRECQ project, powered by the Centre d’études et de recherches intersectorielles en économie circulaire (CERIEC) of the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), in collaboration with HEC Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal and Université de Montréal.
