Picture of a lightbulbThe following was written by Worley:

We’re running a competition for university students in the UK to celebrate COP26. If you win, you’ll join us for a paid summer internship.

Working in teams of three to six, we want you to answer the question: How do we retrofit our world for a circular economy?

This can be an idea, technology or strategy to enable the circular economy now. You can solve one problem or many. You can pick a specific industry, product or service. Or create something new that doesnt exist yet.

What is a circular economy?

A circular economy is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use, and regenerating natural systems. Currently, only eight per cent of the world uses a circular economy model, which means, most of the world is a linear economy.

But how do we introduce a circular economy into today’s society? That’s where you come in. We want you to help us find solutions to make changes now.

The big prize

The winning team will be offered a paid internship with us. Our internship program places you alongside UK leaders and experts, supporting your professional development and boosting your CV. This can be carried out at any of our UK locations or remotely.

But that’s not all, you’ll present your idea to senior leaders, and if applicable, we might provide investment to help you develop your solution further. Finally, each winner will receive a sustainable gift hamper.
