C2C Academy

The C2C Academy inspires and promotes creativity. It connects the voluntary active members of the C2C NGO and offers them further training opportunities: workshops and discussion rounds make it possible to delve deeper into different areas of Cradle to Cradle.


Our platform for knowledge exchange and networking is aimed at cities, municipalities, companies, research institutes and organizations that make C2C the development model of their region. Share your experiences, find allies and form strong competence clusters.

Educational work has always been our core task as an NGO for Cradle to Cradle. Our education department is now bringing the concept to schools as well – through modular educational materials as an integral part of teaching at different grade levels.


The handout “C2C in construction: Orientation for municipalities” gives representatives of cities and municipalities concrete recommendations for C2C solutions in construction. The guide offers comprehensive access and an overview of concepts and materials and is intended to achieve a broad impact of C2C in new construction, renovation and interior design. He offers solutions for a community development inspired by C2C that goes beyond the pursuit of climate or energy neutrality.

Policy briefing for a circular economy C2C

Climate change, species extinction, raw materials crisis, corona pandemic… A look at the world shows that we need a master plan now, otherwise we will continue to stumble from one crisis to the next. The basic prerequisite for this must be the development of an economy that no longer reduces its negative consequences, but leaves a positive footprint. This requires concrete changes that can only be implemented if all political, economic and social sectors work together. With this policy briefing for a circular economy according to Cradle to Cradle (C2C), we show 10 opportunities to start today into an intact future.


We get involved in the public and political discourse on environmental and climate policy in the broadest sense. Among other things, through statements on current topics.
