BLUEPRINT to a Circular Economy

Interreg France (Channel) England programme

Project BLUEPRINT will create the first cross-border delivery model for Local Authorities to transition to a Circular Economy (CE) led by Essex County Council. The project focuses on strengthening local social enterprises and non-profits involved in re-use, repair, refurbishment and recycling. As part of BLUEPRINT, EcoWise’s will create an online waste flow and activity mapping service for Local Authorities. It will enable LA’s to monitor & evaluate CE initiatives and impacts as part of the planning cycle, together with a local community of organisations and companies involved in waste management and CE activities. EcoWise is working closely with Local Institutions and Universities in both England and France in BLUEPRINT, who are working at the forefront of the transition to Circular Economy.
