Thank you to all those who voted for Blue Circular Economy (BCE) in our recent bid to win the Public Choice Award at the upcoming REGIOSTARS Awards 2020. The winner will be announced on 14 October during the European Week of Regions and Cities, so we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed!
In addition to the Public Choice Award, BCE is also a finalist in the Circular Economy for a Green Europe category where it will compete with several other projects from across Europe. This will include a final project pitch made by representatives of each project, and will be a great chance to learn more about the work of BCE, as well as the circular economy solutions being explored by others.
If you would like to learn more about these solutions (and show your support for BCE), you can register to attend the event here.
The finalist pitch will also include another showing of our video in which we explored the opportunities available through the recycling of lost and discarded fishing nets, ropes, and components. To view the video now, check out our YouTube video below.
The European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual four-day event during which cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, implement European Union cohesion policy, and prove the importance of the local and regional level for good European governance.
This year, the event is spreading over three consecutive weeks, each dedicated to one timely topic. If you would like to learn more, you check out a description of the event in a nutshell while the full programme of events can be downloaded here.
