Circular economy and waste reduction
Event report available
In line with the 2050 climate targets to which the EU committed itself under the European Green Deal, the European Commission proposed a new Circular Economy Action Plan in March 2020. It focuses on waste prevention and management and aims to promote the EU’s growth, competitiveness and global leadership. If we continue to use resources in the same way as we have done so far, we would need at least three planets of the Earth by 2050. Finite resources and climate challenges require us to move towards a carbon-neutral, environmentally sustainable, non-toxic and fully circular economy by 2050. At the same time, the current crisis, which has hit SMEs and industry in particular, has highlighted weaknesses in value and source chains. The circular economy will reduce CO2 emissions while stimulating economic growth and creating jobs. In order to achieve a fully circular economy, sustainability needs to be mainstreamed at all stages of the value chain: from design to production to the road to the consumer. What are the views of South Bohemia students on circular economy issues? We will tell them about this during the debate on the Conference on the Future of Europe!
Event reportWorkshop with the active participation of Students from the University of South Bohemia: 25 people EU structural policy Demographic information: age 20-25.10 men, 15 women Focus: Green Deal Students’ views: ‘There is a need for an information campaign on the circular economy showing the negative impact of waste on our immediate surroundings, i.e. the Czech Republic'. 'In the Czech Republic, there is a lack of awareness of the circular economy', 'We do not know what is circular Czechia 2040 and we have not heard about it' 'I have an information video of the European Union on the circular economy. I don't have such campaigns from the Government of the Czech Republic“”We need to create campaigns that will play on the city of people and then think that people are thinking more about sorting and more generally about the circular economy“”We believe that the circular economy is not a priority of the Czech Republic“”We try to separate waste and use Rekola (shared rounds for rapid urbanisation) for transport in our city“”I think we have a big problem with the Czech Republic. When I baked with one ash, I was told me that the same segregated waste would end up in a landfill from us’ General atmosphere: The students were in the debate, which lasted 1.5 hours of ignition and looks forward to the next events we will organise.
