Summary of the project
The initiative aims to promote responsible consumption and production systems in Southern Italy areas. In particular, in Puglia, Campania, Sicily and Sardinia, through initiatives of exchange between economic and social realities on the themes of the Circular Economy, in continuity with the mapping and sensitization activities carried out in the last year by the promoters of the Atlas of Circular Economy.
The preconditions on which the proposal builds on are two: the need to raise awareness in Southern Italy, over the opportunities of developing economic initiatives on the exploitation of discards and waste, building system actions able to strengthen the circular supply chains; the need to reach and train responsible consumers, merging the world of innovative start-ups and of the well-established economic realities working on circular economy with associations able to promote actions that combine social justice and environmental sustainability. Among the project activities, there are: the study and mapping of new realities to be included in the atlas; the organization of opportunities for exchange between economic realities and discussion with local institutions; the promotion of a campaign (I consume circular) that impacts on citizens lifestyle and consumption habits at regional and national level.
100 participants in the seminars, 200 involved associates, 5 associations, 3000 students, 20,000 social contacts, 200 journalists (total 23,500 people)
