The LIFE+ project LOWaste in Ferrara is experiencing a pattern of circular economy based on prevention, reuse and recycling of waste in a logic of public-private partnerships. Starting from some pilot tests it is creating the foundation for the emergence of a genuine local district of green circular economy.
The district consists of waste operators, small recovery platforms, artisans and SMEs engaged in the development of materials and manufacturing of reproducts. With the Pilot, it has been enabled the community 'LOWaste for action,' a group of more than 200 designers, makers, social cooperatives, NGOs and for profit organizations that has actively taken part in the trial and that in the future may give rise to a real district .
LOWAste for Action
LOWaste for Action is a process of community engagement for the launch of three chains
that aims to create sustainable local development starting from the reuse of some specific
materials (hospital textile, construction inert and urban furniture).
The goal is to build opportunities for partnership among all stakeholders making up a production chain (the designer, the craftsman, the producer and the distributor) and launching a pilot phase of the reuse district in Ferrara.
