Educational work for Cradle to Cradle has always been our core mission as an NGO. Educational work for Cradle to Cradle has always been our core task as an NGO. Our Education Department is now bringing the concept into schools – through modular educational materials as an integral part of lessons at different grade levels.
We want our education and knowledge network to grow. We are therefore open to various forms of cooperation with schools, universities, educational initiatives, research institutes and associations. Feel free to contact us if you would like us to hold a workshop at your institution or if you would like to develop an educational format together with us.

Teaching and learning C2C
What is Cradle to Cradle?
Our explanatory video!
Wondering what #CradletoCradle actually means and why it’s a solution to our current climate, resource, environmental problems?
That’s what Nora and Tim from Cradle to Cradle NGO explain in this video. They answer questions such as: Why do we have to deal differently with the raw materials of our earth and, above all, how can we do this? Why is a large footprint sometimes better than a small one? Why is trash just a lack of imagination? Why is nature a role model for our way of doing business? How can we design smart products for cycles? And the question of all questions: Why is this shit not allowed in the circle?
Cradle to Cradle
implementation at schools
There are many ways to bring C2C into schools. From integrating it into the classroom, to projects that transform the learning space, to engaging the school community in new policy frameworks. This brochure offers an overview of the C2C concept and various impulses for practical implementation to become active for C2C in one’s own educational institution.
Modular educational materials
