The Project

Circular Economy for Youth

The development of the circular economy is seen as central to reducing damage to the environment and developing positive change. In 2015 the European Commission adopted an action plan to help accelerate Europe’s transition towards a circular economy, boost global competitiveness, promote sustainable economic growth, and generate new jobs.

This context and background frames the objectives of the Circular Economy for Youth project:
1.To develop guidelines for the establishment of permanent forums for dialogue between youth organizations and local authorities to promote circular economy practices.
2.To develop and implement training programs and activities for young people in the field of the circular economy
3.To promote dialogue through bringing together organizations in the field of the Circular economy and youth organizations on a European, national and regional basis and to promote an exchange of information and best practice. To develop initiatives and projects (including the promotion of entrepreneurial enterprises) for young people in the field of the circular economy and to produce an interactive map of projects and activities in this field.
4.To develop and exchange Open Educational Resources (OERs) for young people to support the occupational profile of a circular economy facilitator”.
