Start Upcycling

Partners: Starkmacher

Two important themes are linked in this project, which not only affects many European countries but is also a global topic: increasing waste production and youth unemployment. The ever-growing mountains of garbage are the result of production and consumption that are not geared to sustainability. Youth unemployment is another big problem for many, leading to social deprivation and poverty which easily breeds resignation, frustration and aggression.This exchange sets examples of good practice, addresses circular design thinking and enables the networking of youth work initiatives and social inclusion with companies that have already had good experience in this arena.
