UPCYCLING meeting in Portugal
The second Transnational Project Meeting in the UPCYCLING project was held in Setúbal, Portugal on 19 - 20 September 2022. The project - which centres on ways to generate less waste and create value-added products in a creative way - is supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission and brings together eight cross-sector institutions from seven culturally diverse countries (Iceland, Spain, Italy, Portugal, The Netherlands, Cyprus and Poland).
The meeting focused on project updates on development of the conceptual background and the framework for the blended course for school educators about the importance of upcycling with practical ideas on how to implement this in the classroom.
The project team enjoyed the hospitality of the host partner in Setúbal and look forwards to the next steps in the project which will focus primarily on training workshops and webinars for teachers interested in introducing upcylcing in their classrooms. to edit.
