The Life Cycle Initiative is very excited to announce the launch of the Portuguese version  of the e-learning course “An Introduction to Life Cycle Thinking”. The introductory course is available for free and is also available in English, Spanish, French and Arabic.

Two other e-learning courses developed by the Life Cycle Initiative: Life Cycle Thinking in Business Decision Making and Life Cycle Thinking in Policy Making are also available for free and are offered in English and Spanish.

We would love to hear what you think of the course. To mark the occasion of the launch, the first 10 people to send us their feedback and tell us how they think it will benefit them in their work, will be featured in our next newsletter. Please send your feedback, along with your certificate of completion, to

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Prof Diogo Silva and his team from the Federal University of São Carlos in Sorocaba, Brazil who translated the course. In-kind contributions of this nature are what helps to extend the reach of the Initiative’s activities and are much appreciated!
