Challenges

The power of the ecosystem

The transition to a more sustainable, digital & collaborative textile & fashion organisation, company or person does not happen overnight and often involves complex challenges, requiring input and actions from outside the organisation. 

Ellie helps you to tackle these challenges by harnessing the power of the Ellie.Connect ecosystem, enabling you to take steps forward and save time, resources & money.

Targeted learning and finding solutions through Challenge Based Learning

Thanks to the collaboration with the Competences for Circular Economy project (C-4CE), with lead partners Centexbel & Breda University of Applied Sciences, supported by Interreg Vlaanderen-Nederland, Ellie offers you several ways to experience the power of challenge based learning for your challenges.

Join the Ellie.Connect ecosystem and transform towards a more sustainable, digital & collaborative organisation.

What is Challenge Based Learning?

The concept

Challenge Based Learning is a new and proven learning concept, particularly in the field of sustainability and circular economy. Unlike other learning methods, Challenge Based Learning focuses on finding practical problems where no solution is yet available at the start. The power lies precisely in finding solutions together.

There are several ways in which you can tap into the potential of Challenge Based Learning through Ellie.Connect.
