Communities Go Circular


Project „Communities Go Circular” was launched as part of the EU program Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Program (CERV). The topic of the project is reuse and reduction of waste (REDUCE, REPAIR, REUSE).

Through this project we will provide education on the subject of Repair&Reuse, encourage the opening of new Repair&Reuse centers, networking of organizations that deal with these topics, encourage changes in the waste management system, and contribute to mitigating climate change.

The main goal of the "Communities Go Circular" project is to involve citizens in the creation of zero waste communities aimed at preventing waste production, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to mitigating climate change. Specific goals of the project:

1. Strengthening zero waste communities in Croatia, Slovenia and Italy by transferring good practices and engaging and empowering citizens;

2. Advocating policy changes by promoting the circular economy and their positive impact on mitigating climate change, with special emphasis on the right to product repair;

3. Developing innovative climate communication tools to strengthen local communities in the EU for the transition to a zero-waste and low-carbon economy.

More than 1000 citizens will diretly participate in the project, together with 61 CSOs and 115 decision-makers. In order to achieve the goal of the project, 26 workshops for citizens will be organized as well as  5 workshops for decision-makers and stakeholders; 2 seminars for CSOs; 4 international conferences in Pula, Krško, Ljubljana and Tuscany and a series of advocacy activities.
