KNOWING CIRCULAR ECONOMY IN BLACK SEA BASIN
Joint Operational Programme Black Sea Basin 2014-2020
BSB – Circlecon : https://circleconproject.eu/
BSB-CIRCLECON deals with spreading the Circular Economy model in the BSB area. A circular economy is explained as an economy ‘where the value of the products, materials and resources is maintained in the economy as long as possible, and the generation of waste minimized’. Turning waste into a resource is an essential part of increasing resource efficiency and closing the loop in a circular economy. The projects intents to promote the EU CE model, inform on waste prevention, reduction and management and establish a permanent BSB cooperation achieving long-term sustainability of its outputs and results.
The overall goal of BSB-CIRCLECON is to promote territorial coordination of environmental protection and sustainable growth in the Black Sea Basin. The idea is to encourage as many actors as possible to embark on the transition to the circular economy, going beyond waste prevention and management to Waste as Valuable Resource. BSB-CIRCLECON targets to promote: Circular Economy package, Common awareness -raising and joint actions to reduce waste, Coordination of environmental protection and joint reduction of waste and marine litter in the Black Sea basin countries, in a lower-level, the “every day” people, supporting and facilitating Brussels and local governments’ activities towards CE.
