The Futurist is delighted to announce its collaboration with the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) to deliver three complimentary course programmes about sustainability, recycling and responsible materials management to jewellery designers around the world.
The webinar modules, endorsed by the RJC, the world’s leading standards-setting organisation for the jewellery industry, will be given by Paola and will take place on October 20, November 3 and November 24, 2021.
The courses will cover areas relevant to designers such as how to create a sustainable and responsibly managed supply chain of metals, gemstones and other materials; recycling; re-purposing; re-design of products and services; “circular design” and the circular economy;
applying the three pillars of sustainability – people, planet and profits – to more conscientious and responsible jewellery design; and case studies of jewellery design inspirations for the sustainably minded consumer.
The courses, which will receive a certificate of completion from the RJC, will encourage designers to join the RJC community.
