About the Programme

The linear economy is based on the take, make and dispose model and treats our earth’s resources like they are infinite. However in reality, our planet has finite resources and there is a need for consumers and organizations to re-think their consumption and production habits. One solution would be the adoption of the circular economy which focuses on re-circulating our resources and eliminating waste.

Join this talk to learn more about the circular economy and how we can transition away from a linear mode of consumption.

About the speaker

Sadaf is a lecturer from Ridge View Residential College. Beyond teaching, she has been the Associate Director of Studies and a Resident Fellow at the college. She is an architect from the School of Planning and Architecture (India), with a Master's in Architecture & Urbanism from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sadaf’s professional work has been situated at the intersect of architecture, urban design and landscape, with an emphasis on design for ‘placemaking’. She firmly believes in the transformative power of design in enhancing the human experience, interaction, and connection to places. This also translates into her academic interests, which centre on examining cultural and built heritage undergoing transformation and contestation. Sadaf enjoys teaching outside the classroom - under trees, in nature parks and around art precincts.
