The aim of the Environmental change project is strengthening the quality of start-uppers, young entrepreneurs and VET providers – enhancing their professional development through the improvement of environmental change competences, as well as giving them the opportunity to validate these competences for immediate application.

The circular economy is an enormous challenge for developing and emerging countries, especially in terms of capabilities to ensure efficient treatment of waste and the responsibility over social behaviours. This project is in line with the European Green Deal postulates focusing especially on topics of circular economy and sustainable solutions.
