Pontypridd Youth

Over the past two and a half years, young people in Pontypridd have been the trailblazers in a European project aimed at finding ways to promote youth dialogue with politicians and policy makers around circular economy. The Youth Forums are expected to produce local action plans with visible results and have already lead to a number of new circular initiatives being implemented.

As the funding for the Erasmus+ CEYOU project comes to an end, here’s a round up of the activities so far…

Pontypridd’s Youth Forum on Circular Economy

As part of the CEYOU project a process to form a Youth Forum on circular economy  started in summer 2020 in Pontypridd, Wales. The activities, coordinated by CEYOU  coordinating partner Pontydygsu Ltd, consisted of a series of online and face to face events involving young people, youth organisations and local elected representatives. The aim of the Forum is to develop an action plan on circular economy and then to carry out those actions. The target audience were young people, (members of Young Friends of the Earth Pontypridd, representatives from local schools, and members of groups such as Girl guides) as well as local representatives from the UK Government, Welsh Assembly and local council. The core group of young people were  already part of an activist group who had been organising and participating in the local  school strikes for Climate action; they had also already participated in a hustings with local  potential candidates for parliament. They were and are still keen to continue their activities.

Session 1 – Kick-off and planning meeting 

In July 2020 One week prior to a planned forum with policy makers, Pontydygsu organised a zoom meeting for the young people and their parents. A short introduction video was filmed by one of  the young people to explain what the group was going to do and a dedicated page on the  CEYOU site was created to share information about the forum. These links were shared with  the families of the young people via a facebook messenger group. The young participants  were asked to think up some questions to inform the plan for the forum. During this initial  planning meeting, the young people created a wish-list of all of the questions and possible  activities they could think of for circular economy and environmental activism in Pontypridd ready to present and discuss with the politicians in the full forum. 

Circular Economy Overview

Session 2 – First Youth Forum  

Session 2 consisted in a round table discussion and workshop with local politicians. The Member of Parliament for Pontypridd, Member of the Senedd for Pontypridd and a Town councillor for Pontypridd were contacted by email and sent  information about the project and the forums. All agreed that they wished to be involved in the activities and the date for a forum was set for 22 July. 

Young FOE presented their ideas for discussion and asked questions of their representatives and then the whole group worked together to agree an action plan with responsibilities assigned to different people.  

Areas of work identified 

The main areas of work identified during the forum were the following: 

Circular Economy

Circular economy initiatives such as clothes and uniform recycling, and increased collection points for difficult to recycle items; 


Training and learning opportunities such as mentoring for young activists, cycling skills, and upcycling; 

Public Awareness

Awareness raising campaigns such as walking, cycling and preventing littering from PPE.

Action plan 

The Action Plan reports the list of activities part of the action plan developed during  the meeting, as well as the actors responsible for each activity and a deadline for the  implementation. The action plan has been disseminated to all participants, also to the wider local friends of the earth group and then publicly on the CEYOU website and social media.  The action plan can also be consulted online. 

Session 3

The group reconvened in October 2020 online to revisit the action plan, review progress  and agree next steps. For this meeting, more young people were invited to attend the forum  via local schools’ eco-councils and additional responsible adults where required.

The group went through the action plan developed in the previous meeting and reviewed  progress for each of the actions. Updates about the work of the group and the activities  developed are regularly posted on the CEYOU website.  

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, several actions had to be delayed but the enthusiasm of  participants stayed high. Several new ideas were developed and added to the action plan.  

New areas of work identified were schemes to award local ethical businesses and the need for public spaces to be designated as wild areas or as community growing spaces. 

The new ideas are listed below: 

Communal Gardens

An open communal garden space where people of all ages can meet at a distance and  garden together; 

Youth Forum Approved

Certificate system for local shops who promote and follow ethical practices ie sustainable  palm oil only or plastic free products; 

Faulty Fridges

Stickers for shop fridges which either don’t work or are being left open; 

Plastic Free

Help creating petitions for example to increase the plastic bag charge, outlaw carrier  bags entirely, or ask mcdonalds to stop putting plastic toys in happy meals; 

Reduce or entirely get rid of plastic bags in local shops; 

What happens to all of the empty hand sanitiser containers from shops and schools?  Can something better be done?


Can we do something about people dropping their disposable masks and gloves on the  floor? 

Session 4

To take forward the ideas discussed with Mick Antoniw MS around active transport and safe routes to school the group invited their local representatives and supporting adults to complete a cycle ride across Pontypridd. This proved to be near impossible as there is no safe cycle route across town and a number of the representatives are as yet unable to ride a bike. The group laid down the challenge for them to learn.

The group took part in some bike rides to highlight the difficulties and the positives encountered on their regular routes. The photos were shared on social media.

In follow-up, the group met with Pontypridd Town Councillor Simon Pritchard to discuss their concerns and to come up with a list of ways to improve cycling around Pontypridd.

Improved signage

Cycle routes could be made clearer, particularly in high traffic areas (Llanover roundabout, Broadway, the main road through Treforest)

Learn to ride

Cycling Proficiency courses should be held in Ynysangharad Park with classes for adults as well as for young people.

Bike care

Cycle maintenance courses could also be considered, in the park and in collaboration with Barry Sidings.

Public awareness

An awareness campaign should be launched to encourage cyclists and pedestrians to respect each other more and to promote transport which is not reliant on fossil fuels.

Fewer car journeys

Promote and encourage car free days. 

Pontypridd Green Week

The group met during Pontypridd Green Week for an informal discussion with Heledd Fychan MS and Mick Antoniw MS. They quickly visited the outstanding points on the action plan and decided to work on their previously planned scheme to reward local businesses with ‘Youth Forum Approved’ Status.

Invitation to The Senedd

During The Great Big Green Week, the UK wide fringe festival for COP26 in  September 2021, Pontypridd Youth Forum were invited by Mick Antoniw MS to attend a meeting with him at the Pier Head Building in Cardiff Bay. The session started with a look at the Senedd building before moving to a round table discussion.

Key Points;

The Rights of the Taff

During Pontypridd’s own contribution to the COP26 fringe festival; Pontypridd Green Week, the youth forum and local residents contributed ideas for a ‘bill of rights’ for the river Taff as it flows through Pontypridd. The bill was read out and presented to Mick Antoniw MS.

Mr Antoniw noted that he liked the idea. The group then discussed ways to enforce the rights of the river and Mick outlined the stakeholders who would have to be consulted as well as the legal process to be followed.

Preventing Littering

One of the proposed rights of the Taff was for it to be kept free of litter. The group proposed more litter bins, easier access to litter picking tools and also ways of reducing packaging in the first place. Support for refill stations in smaller shops was suggested as well as launching a petition for bottle deposit-return schemes to be introduced.

Improving Biodiversity

Following a short discussion about the benefits of reintroducing Wolves and other native apex predators into Pontypridd, the conversation returned to the Taff. There are concerns around the high levels of poisonous metals, a remnant from the coal industry, which are finding their way into bird eggs and causing damage to hatchlings.

The group also noted that adherence to the proposed river rights and a reduction in both litter and pollution would benefit local biodiversity. 

Next steps

CEYOU may be drawing to a close but the forums set up across Europe will continue to meet, work on the action plan points and share new ideas in conversation with their elected representatives. The work done in Pontypridd contributes to guidelines for establishing permanent forums of dialogue between local authorities and youth organisations on Circular Economy. The Key recommendations of this report are as follows;

Key Recommendations

Based on the CEYOU project partners’ experience and research in setting up and facilitating Youth Forums, we are able to list some key recommendations. (Further details via the ‘More Info‘ button):

  • Local authorities, in collaboration with youth organisations and other stakeholders, should aim for engagement methods that foresee an active participation of young people.
  • Traditional youth councils and forums should be revived to foster bottom-up approaches and target environmental topics more specifically.
  • Engagement of young people is most effective and impactful if
    implemented with a territorial approach, though planning processes at the local level.
  • Young people should be enabled to understand decision-making
    processes and its timing.
  • Active engagement of young people should be effective and sustainable in the long run.

A debate on circular economy in Brussels

On 16th February, ACR+ organised a debate in Brussels as an opportunity to gather people involved in circular economy in different ways and to start building bridges between already existing initiative, young people and public authorities.

If you missed the debate, watch the full recording here.

The event was opened by Serena Lisai, from ACR+, who presented the main results of CEYOU:

  • Guidelines to establish a permanent dialogue between local authorities and youth youth organisations;
  • A toolkit that collects the main Online Resources needed to organise a circular initiative;
  • A toolkit to define the steps to follow to implement a circular initiative.

Find the full presentation here.

Young people were asking for some attention and they wanted to be involved in sustainability, circular economy, they wanted to be protagonist of the transition, and with CEYOU we developed engagement strategies to give them the right tools to act! (Serena Lisai, ACR+)

Angela Karadog, coordinator of the CEYOU project, described the activities implemented locally in Pontygrip in the framework of CEYOU. She involved an already quite active group of “Young Friends of the Earth” in online workshops to imagine together the future of their city. Their ideas became the material for an exhibition. During another meeting they had the opportunity to discuss and ask questions to representatives of local and EU authorities, finally developing a detailed action plan. Each kid was made responsible of a specif idea and activity. The group has been contacted by politicians, such as the Welsh Parliament and the local Council, but also by businesses and even The Guardian.

Watch the video from Angela here.

For the next step, I’m going to leave that to them to decide and whatever they decide, we will support them. So that youth focuses on what they want to do and not on what we want them to do and forcing them to do those things. They really love talking, they love standing up, being heard and to know that they are being heard, that’s really important. (Angela Karadog, Pontypridd Youth Forum)

Max Eisenbart was invited as representative of the Fryslan Province (The Netherlands) and as 21 years old BSc student in Global Responsibility and Leadership, youth Coordinator at Regional Center Expertise (RCE) SPARK Fryslan, and Education for Climate Companion. He presented the association Circular Fryslan, which counts over 100 companies, knowledge institutes, and local governments. SPARK the Movement is a programme that focuses on youth and education, following a circular learning approach, promoting the development of the knowledge and skills, but also the values and attitudes of circular economy. The programme focuses on the whole education, from primary schools to universities and beyond.

Discover more on the challenging Fryslan circular goals on this video and check here the presentation of Max.

We need to structurally engage youth through education, when we want to come to sustainable society. And therefore we need a long-term vision but actually also “Be a rebel!”. That is both for educators but also for the students is really a thing to draw outside of the line, dare to question systems, dare to do it a little bit different because this is how youth can also make the difference. (Max Eisenbart, Fryslan Province)

Chloé Mikolajczak, from the Restart project, presented the Right to Repair campaign (R2R). The main goal of the campaign is to fight for a universal right to repair so that all products are included and to fight for the right to repair not only in approved stores (such as big companies) but also in independent repairers/stores. Moving to repairing calls a cultural change, which takes time. Thus, the companies have to be framed and guided trough laws, while acting to raise the consumers’ awareness.

Find a summary in English here.

Between 55 and 58 million tons of electronic waste are thrown away every year, representing the fastest growing waste stream in the world. For instance, smartphones are changed on average every 2/3 years while they should be used for 25 years in order to compensate their ecological impact. (Chloé Mikolajczak, Restart project)

Sophie Remy represented R-Use Fabrik, which a circular initiative Brussels-based divided into 2 main activities: clothing workshops specialized in the manufacture of articles from used textile and an Eco-responsible haberdashery. The workshops are based on sewing and up-cycling and can be organised privately or for groups. R-Use Fabrik aims at reusing up to 3.8 million tons of textile.

Check the full presentation here and the summary in English.

The textile industry is one of the most polluting sectors in terms of water pollution and CO2 emissions. The impact on waste production is also huge since, each year, from the 5 million tons of textiles put on the EU market, 4 millions are thrown away. And recycling is still not the answers since only 1% of the collected clothes are recycled (87% are incinerated or sent to the landfills). (Sophie Remy, R-Use Fabrik)

Paula Antón brought the example of Finnova Foundation as non-profit organisation involved in circular initiatives at local and European level. Finnova supports the financing of innovation of companies, regions and municipalities (local and international level) in sustainable development, circular economy and water management. In line with the European Year of Youth 2022, Finnova created the EU training platform, an online learning platform containing courses on European funds, circular economy, LIFE program, EU communication, etc.

Find the full presentation of Paula here, and a summary in English.

The event was concluded by a collection of insights from the participants on the topic of circular economy and, in particular, on how to include this approach on our everyday life.

CEYOU in the Senedd

In September the Pontypridd (CEYOU)Youth Forum on Circular Economy was invited to the Senedd, the young people had an audience with Mick Antoniw MS where they discussed the Rights of the Taff River, biodiversity, and ways to reduce plastic pollution. The group agreed to start work on a petition for a bottle return scheme.

Youth and circular economy: what are the challenges?

In 2019 young people and students from Europe and all over the world took to the streets to demand action to halt environmental damage and climate change. The development of the circular economy is seen as central to reducing damage to the environment and developing positive change. In fact, the European Commission has adopted an action plan to help accelerate Europe’s transition towards a circular economy. What are the tools provided to young people to be involved and empowered into local circular initiatives? Are they supported to take action and be part of the transition? How can the connection among youth and local authorities be reinforced? And, finally, what are the needs of young people to be empowered to understand and act upon environmental matters?

These are just some of the questions that will be discussed during the debate “Youth and circular economy: what are the challenges? Debate on engagement strategies to facilitate young people to be part of the circular transition” organised in the framework of the Erasmus+ CEYOU project by ACR+ | Association of Cities and Regions for sustainable Resource management. The event will be held in the auditorium B1.315, at the Campus Solbosch (building B) on 16 February from 6pm to 8pm.

ACR+ to celebrate erasmus+ days with an inspiring video

What are the impact of the Erasmus+ programme on a network of public authorities? ACR+, partner of the CEYOU project, will join #ErasmusDays by releasing a video on its Erasmus+ adventure. Join ACR+ on Youtube on 14 October at 10:00 CET to discover more on the Erasmus+ projects in which the network is involved and the real impact it had on ACR+ and its members.

ACR+ started its Erasmus+ journey in 2019 with the CYCLE project. Since then, after seeing cities and regions from the network and outside taking steps to strengthen circular economy aspects in vocational training, ACR+ understood that its role as an international network is to share these experiences with educators, policy makers, and all those supporting local circular economy loops through educational tools. The introduction of strategic objectives linked to the Green Deal in the newest Erasmus+ programming period has paved the way for an even more structured work of the network. Thanks to the support of the Erasmus + programme, ACR+ keeps consolidating a living community of practice, which has to its credits international workshops, thematic publications, and a wide range of local raising awareness activities. Four projects, presented in the video, encompass the efforts taken by ACR+ and its members to boost the uptake of circular economy within education, vocational training, and life-long learning: CYCLE, CEYOU, Greener and GreenSportsHub.

Make sure you connect on Youtube on 14 October at 10:00 CET to learn more about the Erasmus+ projects of ACR.

Great Big Green Week 2021

This Autumn, world leaders will meet in Glasgow for COP26, the UN  Climate Change Conference. This summit is a crunch point for tackling climate change, countries will need to agree and meet highly ambitious targets to reduce Greenhouse gases.

Ahead of this event, communities across the UK are holding their own Great Big Green Week fringe festivals, stepping up their actions to reduce emissions and urging world leaders to ‘step up’ too.

CEYOU initially registered the Pontypridd Green Week expecting to run a single multiplier event for the project combined with a social media campaign throughout the week. But the people of Pontypridd, home of CEYOU coordinators Pontydysgu, knew we could do better than that! Now we have partnered with Climate.Cymru and the local branch of Friends of the Earth and we are organsing what is shaping up to be a bumper week of activities, workshops, arts, presentations and celebrations.

Pontypridd Green Week even has its own poet in residence, Rufus Mufasa, former Future Generations Act Poet in Residence for Wales and a  leading artist in promoting and mentoring young voices.

The week kicks of with a community fancy dress litter-pick followed by drop-in engagement sessions, presentation of the CEYOU products, an upcycled art project, a recycled fashion show, documentary film screening, and CEYOU youth forum session. On day two, members of the youth forum have been invited by Mick Antoniw MS to visit the Senedd, (theWelsh Parliament).

During the week there will be social media challenges, an eco book club and shop window displays to entertain and engage passers by. CEYOU will also hold a series of webinars on youth engagement with circular economy initiatives.

At the end of the week we have a Repair Cafe, introduction to permaculture and a plenary session with  local councillor and assembly member, Heledd Fychan.

Throughout the build-up to Pontypridd Green Week local people have been contributing ideas to create a bill of rights for the Taff, the river flowing through the heart of the town. These rights, such as ‘The right to be free from litter’ will be incorporated into a handmade scroll and presented during a celebration of the rights of the river.

CEYOU has circulated info packs to local schools and businesses. They are also available to download.

For more info please follow the Pontypridd Green Week Facebook page.

Putting youth at the core of circular economy. Join us at the upcoming CEYOU event!

2019 has been an historical pushing point towards an ecological transition that sees youth as the central protagonists. Young people and students from Europe and all over the world took to the streets to demand action to halt environmental damage and climate change. Young people want to be part of this transition and there are many strategies to facilitate the dialogue between youth and decision makers.

The CEYOU project aims to empower young people to take positive actions and initiatives within their local communities, to develop networks and exchange practices at local, regional, national and European levels, in order to promote the transition towards a circular economy. As the first result of the project, the CEYOU partners published a set of guidelines to establish permanent forums of dialogue on circular economy, involving young people in the development of local circular strategies.

The guidelines have been built on CEYOU partners practical experience in testing the implementation of these kinds of forums. In order to present these methodologies and inspire other organisations to embrace the involvement of youth in promoting circular economy, the CEYOU project will organise an event titled “Putting youth at the core of circular economy”.

On 2nd July 2021 from 10.30 to 12.00 CET time


Furthermore, ALDA, the European Association for Local Democracy will present its activities at European level and in particular some projects focused on building sustainable communities, especially involving youth in climate action.

The CEYOU event will be an opportunity to gather successful methodologies to involve young people into the ecological transition and development of circular communities. For this, the event has been planned in collaboration with the European Week for Waste Reduction, which will focus on the topic of circular communities.

Join us and get inspired by these practical experiences!

CEYOU joins the European Week for Waste Reduction

The end of November marked the 12th edition of the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR), the biggest awareness-raising event in Europe about reducing, reusing and recycling waste. On this occasion, CEYOU partners Pontydysgu and Youth Express Network (Y-E-N) organised a series of activities engaging young people, and not only, in their communities.

Pontydysgu, together with some local community organisations in the Rhondda Cynon Taf county, launched a zero-waste initiative called Zero Waste Cynon Diwastraff. The goal was to showcase local circular economy activities and enabling youth and community to get involved. The group launched several competitions in time for EWWR to generate more excitement about the project and “put Cynon on the map”. They asked people to submit zero waste posters, zero waste lunch-box ideas, zero-waste hacks and food waste reduction recipes.

Local eco-companies donated products and samples that were used to make eco-hampers as prizes for the poster competition. A member of parliament for Cynon Valley agreed to choose a winner for the poster competition. Definitely not an easy task!

Have a look at all the poster entries of the competition at this link.

In Strasbourg, France, Youth Express Network responded to the EWWR call by organising a series of online events for young people and youth organisations representatives.

The first one, on 16 November, was on how to lower our environmental impact at the office and during youth events. For this occasion, Y-E-N invited Lari Schinteie, co-founder of Sustainable Babes, initiative aiming at raising awareness on the climate crisis and educating people on their power as consumers. As a follow-up to the event, Y-E-N published an extract of 6 videos:

The second event took place on 19 November and focused on circular fashion. The event discussed topics such as Eco-labeled products, second-hand clothes, how to make clothes last longer by learning to repair, transform and recycle them once they are worn out. The recording the event is available online (in French).

The third and last event, held on 26 November, was about eco-anxiety. Anxiety around environmental issues may stem from the awareness of a rising risk of extreme weather events, losses of livelihood or housing, fears for future generations, and feelings of helplessness. At the moment, eco-anxiety is not an official medical diagnosis. Mental health professionals may instead describe it as a chronic sense of environmental doom, usually based on feelings of powerlessness about environmental damage or climate change. This workshop discussed eco-anxiety, including what it is, the common symptoms and how to spot and manage it. You can watch the recording (in French) at this link.

Last but not least, during EWWR the two youth enterprises that Y-E-N had accompanied along the year 2020 officially launched their websites and e-shops. One enterprise, based in Strasbourg, is called Patchworkers and works on circular fashion. All clothes are designed by a local young designer and created in Strasbourg by unemployed women in reinsertion from reused materials collected in local charities. The other one, based in Timisoara, Romania, is the above-mentioned Sustainable Babes. They provide a range of services and products for people to adopt sustainable lifestyles, they raise awareness on the climate crisis and buycott.


Youth Circular Economy Initiatives are Growing in Pontypridd

In 2019, young people and students from Europe and all over the world began to take to the streets to demand action to halt environmental and climate change. On one day of action in March organisers said there were more than 2,000 protests in 125 countries. The student movement was inspired by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, now nominated for a Nobel Prize two years in a row, who kicked off a global movement after she sat outside Swedish parliament every Friday beginning last August. Young people have successfully elevated the need for the environment to be included in the school curriculum.
The development of the circular economy is seen as central to reducing damage to the environment and developing positive change. In 2015 the European Commission adopted an action plan to help accelerate Europe’s transition towards a circular economy, boost global competitiveness, promote sustainable economic growth and generate new jobs. The Welsh Government is currently reviewing the responses to its 2020 consultation on circular economy which includes their ambition to become world leaders in zero waste, low carbon and sharing resources fairly.
The Circular Economy for Youth or CEYOU project started at the end of 2019 in the midst of climate strikes and extinction rebellion protests. Our aim, to promote circular economy initiatives to young people as a proactive way of combating the pressing issues of climate change and sustainability.
The project is active in North Macedonia, Greece, Italy, Belgium, France and Wales and despite current restrictions around physical meetings has been successful in supporting and initiating a number of initiatives.
In Italy a series of online Hackathons were held where youth participants worked on ideas for a circular economy business with the best ideas being taken forward for development and a prize awarded to the winning team.
In Wales a younger group of environmental activists participated in online workshops to produce a guide for ‘Staying Green in Quarantine’.

The same group reconvened via Zoom a few more times to work with local artists on the themes of biodiversity, biomimicry, and the future, the results of which are now part of the online exhibition Pontypridd 2120. The youngsters were still keen to do more and had suggested growing their own food and making their own compost as part of the staying green guide, so CEYOU in partnership with Pontypridd Friends of the Earth launched Grow Pontypridd, to support and encourage people to grow and share edible produce. With small contributions from both the Town Council and CEYOU to get started, CEYOU’s coordinators Pontydysgu were able to apply for funding from InterlinkRCT. The project has now delivered around 50 home grow veg packs to local residents who would not otherwise be able to get started growing veg due to the financial implications or because of isolating due to covid19. Many of the packs were delivered to residents’ doors by the kind volunteers at the local food bank, others were dropped for collection at community centres.

To make the packs, members of the community donated seeds, seedlings and pots and the project provided compost, growing instructions and a welcome note. Our team of youth volunteers made up packs and added in hand drawn pictures and notes.

The adults dealt with the tricker issues of coordination, pickups and deliveries. Following the initial success the local council donated compost from their green waste recycling.

The social media publicity prompted a local community centre to contact us asking for advice on how to turn their disused raised beds into a community vegetable garden and so yet another initiative began, Little Garden, a family orientated community garden with a long term plan to become a food coop.

In parallel to the growing projects CEYOU is also arranging an online youth forum on Circular Economy at which young people from Pontypridd will be able to discuss the pressing issues of post Covid19 recovery and formulate an action plan alongside local government representatives from both Westminster and the Senedd. More information to follow!
Central to CEYOU is the bringing together of youth organisations and networks, together with Circular Economy associations at European, regional and municipal levels including local government. The aim is not only to exchange initiatives and best practice but to establish a permanent forum for dialogue including around policy and practice. Such goals will develop the capacities of all participant organisations and build the foundation for longer term collaboration in this area. For more information contact the CEYOU project coordinator angela [dot] gerrard [at] gmail [dot] com or check our facebook and website.
