The Circular Economy for Sustainable Agriculture and Food Production (CESAAM) has recently been awarded a grant to set up a living lab for the circular economy. This is a significant achievement for CESAAM and for the promotion of sustainable agriculture and food production.
The circular economy is a concept that aims to keep resources in use for as long as possible and to extract the maximum value from them before they are eventually recovered or recycled. This is in contrast to the traditional linear economy, where resources are extracted, used, and then discarded. The circular economy is an important concept for sustainable agriculture and food production because it can help to reduce waste, increase efficiency, and promote the use of renewable resources.
The living lab that CESAAM is setting up will be a space where the community can access information and resources about the circular economy. It will also be a place where capacity building can take place, with training and education programs for the youth and small business start-ups. This is important because it will give young people the skills and knowledge they need to start and grow sustainable businesses that contribute to the circular economy.
The living lab will also be a place where small business start-ups can test their ideas and products in a real-world setting. This is crucial for the development of sustainable agricultural and food production practices, as it will allow small businesses to identify and address any challenges or issues that arise before they are scaled up.
