  • Inquire for a 20 min online presentation about CE ecosystems in Scotland

    Posted by Kaisa Sibelius on 28/04/2023 at 6:22 am


    I am writing to you on behalf of the TREASoURcE* project to inquire about your interest in presenting an example of an ecosystem at our upcoming webinar, “Deep dive into European Circular Economy Ecosystems”. Specifically, we are seeking practical examples related to plastics, re-used EV batteries, and bio-based side and waste streams.

    We would greatly appreciate it if you could provide us with insight into the purpose of one of your ecosystems, who the beneficiaries are, and any pros and cons that come with creating and maintaining the ecosystem. The presentation should be around 20 minutes, including a Q&A session.

    TREASoURcE is part of the EU’s Circular Cities and Regions Initiative, which aims to support the implementation of circular economy solutions throughout Europe’s cities and regions. Our project focuses on developing technologies and systemic circular economy solutions for currently underutilized or unused plastic waste, end-of-life electric vehicle batteries, and bio-based side and waste streams. By working with companies, societies (including citizens, consumers, communities, and regional actors), and experts in the field, we hope to significantly increase product and material circulation in the Nordic and Baltic Sea Regions.

    The webinar is scheduled for May 26th, from 9:00-12:00 CET, and its purpose is to present how to create value chains and ecosystems in the circular economy industry. Our audience consists of project partners and other stakeholders from Nordics and Baltics.

    I have attached a preliminary agenda below, and would greatly appreciate your participation. Some of the examples are confirmed, and I am still searching for the best cases to present, so you can select the most suitable domain.

    Hi Kaisa,

    Sounds like an interesting event. I will look to sign up.

    I do not live in the Tay Region so other members will be able to give local examples. However, I would suggest Zero Waste Scotland may have some good examples, who are an NGO that lead of Scotland using products and resources responsibly.

      Hello Alan,

      Thank you for replying.
      Could we have a short chat e.g. today (Monday 8th May) or tomorrow? I would like to confirm the programme asap.
      It’s not necessary to have examples only from Scotland, any good examples are more than welcome.
      You can send me an email or call me +358 40 5701317
