The third partner meeting also served to work on the concept and implementation of the "StartUpcycling eCourse" which will be published in a few weeks.
The representatives of the seven partners from Brazil, Europe, India and South Africa, came together in Muizenberg, a beautiful beach-side suburb of Cape Town. Not far from the southern tip of Africa, discussions, meetings and initiatives focused on the growing problem of garbage and increasing inequality among young people. The international NGOs see great potential in upcycling and related technologies and methods to also develop job opportunities and thus to improve the chances of young people. The experiences and many stories show that it can create green start-ups and new social business models worldwide.
The involved youth workers and experts from more than ten nations show these potentials in the jointly developed eCourse. The Facebook campaign for the eCourse has already begun in order to promote the course.
