We are shaping the future consumers - the circulents - users in a life cycle of materials.
The young generation is increasingly taking on a leading role in coming up with circular solutions and acting as users instead of owners. We want to take this engagement to a larger level. Therefore, we are designing a leadership programme on circular economy that will involve around 50 youth in the Nordic and Baltic Sea regions. The participants will meet experts and learn how to become “circulents” in their every-day life, how to advocate circularity and implement solutions. The programme starts with a four-block education upon which a hackathon is organised where companies and experts present challenges for the participants to solve. Also, the programme prepares a declaration that is being adopted during the 2021 ReGeneration Week. There, a documentary film series on the programme will be premiered. The digital platform ACTER mobilises the engagement during and after the programme.
The project starts in 2021. We plan to open the call for applications in late January. The project welcomes partner organisation throughout the year.
