The traditional, linear economic model -based on the idea of the production, consumption, and subsequent disposal of goods – results in a vast amount of resources going to waste. As we increasingly deal with the various challenges of inhabiting a world of finite resources, the necessity of transitioning to a Circular Economy in order to reuse and repurpose used goods and materials is becoming clearer and clearer.
As a response to this, EURADA is taking part the project U-Eco – co-financed by the European Union’s ERASMUS+ program – working in concert with project partners Bioazul (Spain), DEFOIN (Spain), Center for Promoting Lifelong Learning / CPIP (Romania), and Association for the Regional Initiatives Development / ARID (Poland). The project began in October 2019 and will continue until September 2021.
Transition to a Circular Economy will require deeper understanding from businesses, professionals, and society as a whole of how they can contribute to helping this change along. European labour markets are adapting and becoming more efficient in their use of resources but this process can only be improved and sped up by equipping Europeans with greater understanding of the Circular Economy, thus boosting their employability, supporting self-employment, and meeting the new labour market demand for Circular Economic activities.
EURADA will contribute specifically through the organization of 2 Multiplier Events in 2021 to share the outputs of the project, the coordination of the U-Eco Final Meeting in Brussels, as well as supporting the other project partners throughout the life cycle of the project. Tasks will include:
