Moving towards a sustainable and waste-free future is one of the greatest challenges for today’s Europe. How do we move from a consumption economy to a circular economy, close resource streams and ensure we recycle and reuse materials as much as possible? What do we need to achieve this system change?What can we learn from different perspectives on this ‘leave no waste behind’ challenge? How do universities, industry and politicians try to tackle this problem? And how can we engage students and the wider public to help out?
With this event and together with universities, politicians and industry, the EuroTeQ Engineering University addresses different perspectives on a waste-free future. They look at their ideas and solutions, and show how EuroTeQ uses collaborative co-creation education formats to include the ideas of students from all types of educational institutes in solving the challenge of a waste-free future.
