The Circular Economy Network in Islands (RECIS) is a non-profit association based on the island of Gran Canaria.
It studies and disseminates circular economy solutions to resource scarcity and environmental fragility, which hinder the development of island territories. It also promotes the circular economy in islands and nurtures good practices and sustainability. The network takes a broad approach, since many of the problems facing islands require multidisciplinary solutions.
The network focuses on:
- problem generation (waste generation, energy consumption)
- circular solutions with companies or institutions managing these resources
- experts providing opinions and solutions
- public administrations
- researchers who will be able to develop new methodologies
