The circular economy is a phrase that defines an economic system designed to be able to regenerate on its own, thus also guaranteeing its eco-sustainability. In 2020, this definition aims to definitively enter the habits of the world population, as a concrete action to protect the environment. In this case too, PRISM shows itself in step with the times and skilled in intercepting challenges, which reflect the most pressing needs on the international scene. From 20 to 21 January, the first meeting of the CICLO project [boosting the CIrcular eConomy skills of the EU services Labor fOrce] took place at the CENTER FOR SOCIAL INNOVATION LTD in Nicosia, (Cyprus). This project aims to enhance and multiply the professional retraining opportunities for long-term unemployed and low-skilled workers, in the field of circular market evolution, through innovative tools, accompanied by methods of recognition and validation of the acquisition of skills. All the project partners from Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Ireland, Portugal and Spain were present at the meeting. During the meeting each partner association presented its peculiarities gradually defining the role within the project. In addition, all financial and administrative aspects have been clarified to mitigate any future risks. The next meeting will be held in September 2020 in Thessaloniki, to check the results obtained after a year of activity.
The project, which started in October 2019 is funded by the program (Erasmus +, Strategic partnerships for vocational education and training) and will end in September 2021.
