Shifting local urban economies towards a circular production and consumption paradigm: first INNOMED-UP project conference
The 1st INNOMED-UP conference will be held online on the 15th February 2021 and will review the results achieved by the project in the first year of activities since its start in 2019.
As Mediterranean Cities face the problem of overwhelming waste production demanding effective and urgent actions, the INNOMED-UP Project proposes to work with Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs) to shift local urban economies towards a circular production and consumption paradigm including optimal use of material resources, innovation enhancement for SME, knowledge transfer among Mediterranean cities, social inclusion, and citizens’ engagement.
The conference will showcase the experience of the partners in developing new solutions to the problem of urban waste, by leveraging the know-how and creativity of CCIs that are present in the historical centers of the Mediterranean Cities. Partner cities from both shores of the Mediterranean Sea will share the practices that - based on their common cultural background and identity - attempt to integrate the principles of the circular economy into their productive schemes. Moreover, the event aims to promote a close collaboration with other projects and territories working on the field of Circular Economy and Creative and Cultural Industries and explore how SMEs are being supported in their efforts towards the circular transition.
