Seed money for "Circular economy in the Baltic Sea Region"

The Swedish Institute - Baltic Unit recently granted funding for the seed money project "Circular economy in the Baltic Sea Region". This project aims at creating a multi-level network on the concept of circular economy and to share experiences and knowledge on a local and regional level on how to use less raw material and reduce waste in the Baltic Sea region. The network will also identify focus areas in which working groups will start preparing an application for a larger project.

The city of Malmö is leading the seed money project, other involved partners are the city of Liepaja, Latvia, Smart house Competence Center in Rakvere, Estonia and UBC sustainable Cities Commission.

We will have the first project meeting on the 4th of June, during our UBC Sustainable Cities Commission meeting in Turku, welcome to join!
