>>> Back to seminar overview

Key dates of the Bucharest Intensive Study Programme

Why waste is a challenge for Bucharest

  • There is a serious lack of an action-driven waste management system for individual consumers
    • What do we do now with the used clothing items, paper, glass, the oil used in cooking, batteries, printers, used tires, plastic (bottles)?
    • What could we do differently (better) for the environment?
  • Too few companies are using circular economy in their business model
    • How do we convince more companies to integrate circular economy principles of reduce, reuse, recycle?
  • Serious lack of education for adults on waste management (at home, at work)
    • How do we convince consumers to reduce, reuse, recycle various items?

The Bucharest Ecosystem of Circular Economy

The Bucharest Ecosystem of Circular Economy, author: Dr. Daniela Staicu, Atelier Merci Charity

Focus Topics and Activities

  • Exploring Bucharest‘s ecosystem for circular economy
  • Focus: Recycling, waste management and circular economy
  • Cooperation with social businesses already active in the field of waste management:
  • Core question: How to strengthen the capacity of social enterprises based in Bucharest?
  • This will start by addressing concrete challenges the social businesses are currently facing

Mission of the Bucharest Community Innovation Lab

  • A learning tool to achieve the main goal of the project: to develop, establish and maintain a new framework for linking University to its local communities.
  • A starting point for co-creation and co-founding of local entrepreneurial solutions to local problems.
