Hackathon to foster youth participation in the circular economy

The CEYOU project will challenge youth in San Giuseppe Vesuviano, Italy, to get creative and engage with circular economy during an innovative hackathon. Participants, who include associations, informal groups and individuals between 18 and 30 years old, will have two days to jointly develop ideas, activities and workshops to foster circular economy in four municipalities (Palma Campania, San Gennaro Vesuviano, San Giuseppe Vesuviano and Striano), covering three key sectors: food waste reduction, waste prevention and product life extension.

The hackathon will take place on 9 March and 3 April 2020. It is organised by UCSA as part of a series of activities of the CEYOU project to foster youth participation and engagement with circular economy. The innovative circular economy services created by the hackathon’s participants will be implemented in a second stage in the targeted territories either by UCSA directly or by a third party.
