Join our Regional Design Thinking Workshop to Develop Products from “Waste” on 26 October

Companies from the Bergisches Städtedreieck, Wuppertal, Remscheid und Solingen in Germany are invited to join this regional design thinking workshop to develop new products from “waste” materials at the Gläserne Werkstatt in Solingen on October 26, 2022. The CSCP’s project Gläserne Werkstatt partners up with the project InSym to offer this hands-on workshop.

As a place for quality and sustainability in the Bergisches Städtedreieck, the Gläserne Werkstatt also stands for innovative thinking of new products and for the networking of a wide variety of players to open up new paths. In this context, the design of products and services plays an increasingly important role in the future circular economy.

Against this background, the Gläserne Werkstatt together with the Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Production and Consumption (CSCP) invites you to the Design Thinking Workshop:

Workshop: Design Thinking Workshop to Develop Products from “Waste”
Date: 26 October 2022
Time: 14:00-18:00
Place: Gläserne Werkstatt, Solingen
Language: German
Cost: Free of charge, 12 Participants maximum
Registration by October 20:
Please include (optionally) your name and the name of your company

The project InSym will be a guest at the workshop and will accompany the event with its expertise. InSym is working to promote sustainable, circular resource use in the Bergisches Städtedreieck with small and large companies. This means, for example, that materials and residual materials generated in the work process do not have to be disposed of, but are given a second life. But InSym also focuses on machine hours and other capacities!

Behind InSym is a project supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The Wuppertal Institute, the Bergische Struktur- und Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft and the digital agency shetani are involved. The workshop offers the chance to get in touch with the project representatives Jana Nicolas (Wuppertal Institute) and Anne Gebuhr (Bergische Struktur- und Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft mbH).

The CSCP as an international think and do tank based in Wuppertal uses creative and solution-oriented methods to move sustainability projects forward. The Design Thinking approach combines different tools, perspectives and feedback rounds and builds a bridge to practice by developing and testing a first prototype for a defined problem in a short time.
