This project is a collaborative effort between esteemed partners: BRANCH ASSOCIATION POLYMERS Bulgaria, Get Involved Association from Bulgaria, Udruga za savjetovanje MORE COACHING from Croatia, and Liofyllo Social Cooperative Enterprise from Greece. 

Aims and Objectives
At its core, "Green Opportunity – Re-design the future" aims to showcase the environmental benefits of embracing circular economy principles. By redefining production and consumption paradigms, the project seeks to integrate natural ecosystems into our daily lives, businesses, and communities while mitigating waste. Through the creation of engaging animated video clips and a comprehensive toolkit on circular economy, the project endeavors to inspire young people to take action, fostering a shift away from the linear economy model of "take-make-dispose."

  • Community leaders, volunteers, youth workers, trainers, and teachers
  • Young people eager to champion eco-friendly initiatives
  • NGOs promoting non-formal and informal learning
  • Young people from various backgrounds, including those facing socio-economic challenges
  • Civil society organizations and local authorities advocating for environmental protection policies
