Description

The objective of the Atlas of Circular Economy is to build a network of companies and associations working in the field, in order to create potential synergies and increase their visibility. Users can freely browse through the experiences collected, searching through regions and/or main category of products or services offered. The Atlas is regularly updated with new experiences and the mapping process is participatory.

The competition is open to professional or amateur storytellers who have to depict a circular economy experience through a video, photo, audio or written reportage. The objective is to raise awareness and promote sustainable consumer behavior.
