Theme of 2022: Moving towards Circularity

In our current linear economy, we take materials from Planet Earth, transform these into products, and get rid of them as waste. This must change. Resources are becoming scarce and our impact on the environment, and therefore on communities all around the globe, is catastrophic. We need to transform our ’take-make-waste’ system into a more sustainable model.


Nudge’s method to create impact is by connecting Head, Heart and Hands.

The programme’s framework is based around four building blocks:

  • Changing Perspectives (keynotes, inspiration, interaction)
  • Changing Practices (skills development, presenting, friendly consulting, diverse workshops etc.)
  • Personal development (coaching, leadership training)
  • Purpose (creating a sustainable world)

After the eight-month development programme, you will have:
