CECI has committed to publishing a Newsletter every semester, thus offering a summary of the progress of the project:
Newsletter nº 1
This first issue reports on the development and results of the First Interregional Meeting held on December 3 and 4 in Lahti (Finland).
In this issue, the information is organized into the following sections:
- Terminology: definition, within the CECI framework, of the terms "Circular economy", "Collaborative economy" and "Citizen involvement" and also guides us on how to participate in the project.
- Definition and criteria for the identification and expression of "good practices" in circular economy.
- “State of the Art” of the circular economy in the territories of the project partners.
In addition, it includes two work methodologies put into practice by one of the partners (Makesense) and two good practice experiences by two other project partners.
Newsletter nº 2
The second number has as a novelty the good practices that have been identified in this semester by the partners. Good practices are one of the tools that Interreg Europe projects have to favor the exchange of experiences and knowledge, fostering dialogue at the local and regional level.
The Government of Aragon has presented two:
- Prepare for Reuse, on the preparation for reuse by BSH company
- Erre que erre, which is educational material for waste reduction. These materials have been produced jointly by the General Directorate of Climate Change and Environmental Education and the General Directorate of Innovation, Equity and Participation of the departments of Agriculture, Livestock and Environment and Education, Culture and Sports, respectively.
In addition, the newsletter informs about the activities and events on circular economy carried out by each of the partners during the semester, on topics such as food waste, collaborative economy, shared mobility services, textiles, etc.
Newsletter nº 3
This issue explains how the partners, despite the limitations of COVID-19 in 2020, have adapted their activities to continue with the original project plan. Thus, since March 2020, through videoconferences and webinars, training actions, thematic sessions on good practices, communication tools and the exchange of knowledge related to the Action Plan have been held.
This issue recounts all the dynamics of the Third Interregional Meeting organized this time by the Moravian-Silesian Innovation Center of Ostrava, in the Czech Republic. Held from November 4 to 6, its central theme was the Action Plans, since the partners are committed to developing them to materialize the lessons learned about the role of citizens in the circular economy and new solutions. The situation of the partners that have ERDF and concrete experiences of Good Practices were also the subject of the meeting.
The General Directorate of Climate Change and Environmental Education has participated actively during the three days of the videoconference and also the Green Office of the University of Zaragoza, stakeholder of the project, has had the opportunity to present in the session dedicated to the agents involved, their good practice on waste management at this University.
