Sustainable progress to build the Future: MESAP presents RETRACE

On 25th January 2019 MESAP promoted RETRACE (“A Systemic Approach for REgions TRAnsitioning towards a Circular Economy”), an Interreg project aiming at promoting systemic design as a method helping local and regional policies to move towards a circular economy, a new economic paradigm according to the 3R approach of “Reduce, Reuse & Recycle”. In a circular economy value is created by focusing on value retention focused on the sustainability through eco-effectiveness or eco-efficiency. As the French scientist Antoine Lavoisier has written in 1743,  “Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed”. RETRACE aims at identify and exchange of 30 good practices in 5 target policy areas, inspiring politicians and policy-makers with specific activities and drafts a road map for the adoption of method and good practices by other EU regions.
