Summary of the project
The project is an initiative aimed at improving the Waste Management System in Huelva Province involving the population of the village of the Province in these management processes by providing information on the problem of urbanization, waste and alternatives such as reuse and recycling. In order to do this, an itinerant exhibition and complementary awareness-raising activities will be carried out.
The project represents a firm commitment with circular economy concept, an economy in which ” in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life”. This requires an alliance with citizens, and in order to achieve it is necessary to provide them have information about the programmed obsolescence. To this end, the project aims to inform and raise awareness about the obsolescence of the objects we use and its environmental consequences, as well as on the alternatives to these practices that are available to citizens (prevention, reuse, recycle etc.) by making known the programmed obsolescence and its effects on the population of the municipalities and offering to the population of the municipalities the needed information to ensure that they can carry out a correct separation of waste.
- 35.000 inhabitants of the targeted neighborhood
In order to promote greater environmental sustainability and apply new concepts of circular economy, solidarity and transformation, the Traperos Huelva Association has launched a travelling exhibition “Zero Waste Huelva” dealing with programmed obsolescence, growing consumption and mass production that generate serious problems of waste accumulation and pollution. It was developed in 14 towns in Huelva to highlight the current major environmental problems and to bring the population closer to this problem, proposing a path of reflection for changes in habits and consumption that are more sustainable and in line with the principles of sustainability.
