Topics include recycling, reuse, pollution, and designs for a better future.

What is the A Future Without Waste Course?

This 5-session course pack contains free learning through play materials designed by the LEGO Group's Sustainability team, in partnership with subject matter experts at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, champions of the circular economy. With the course's downloadable resources, educators are empowered to guide learners ages 7-12 through developing their own creative solutions to real-world challenges relating to reuse, waste, pollution, and resource consumption through hands-on creative activities.

Students will learn how designing things better can help overcome the environmental challenges that face our planet and our people, by:

  • Eliminating waste and pollution.
  • Keeping products and resources in use.
  • Regenerating nature.

All activities are designed to use creative materials rescued from the trash—LEGO® bricks can also be used but are not required!

What's in the Course Pack?

The free, downloadable Course Pack includes everything you need to run the A Future Without Waste course with your students:

  • Lesson plans and supplemental materials for five 45-minute classroom sessions, including speaker's notes, polls, quizzes, animated videos, and a printable course journal. These can be spaced out to create anything from an intensive day of activities to a months-long program.
  • Instructions for hosting a "showcase day" event where children's creations and ideas are displayed.
  • Tips for adapting the sessions for curriculum, local relevance, and age/ability.
