The Great Recovery Report: Investigating the role of design in the circular economy

The Great Recovery project, launched in September 2012 by the Action and Research Centre at the RSA, aims to build a cross disciplinary design community that is equipped to support the development of an economy based on resource-efficient principles.

This report covers the first 6 months of the Great Recovery project, including the circular network, workshops, and teardown observations. Through this we have gained a better understanding of what action and research is required to transform the way society manages resources, and this report outlines a series of key recommendations based on the findings of the first phase of The Great Recovery programme.

This is a revised and updated version of the report, from September 2014.
