IHF joined the Closing Meeting of the CARE project

On February 2nd, 2024, IHF joined the Closing Meeting of CARE, a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme, which brings together seven partners from four countries (Spain, Italy, Portugal, Belgium). The Closing Meeting was held in Portugal and hosted by the University of Aveiro.

CARE is an international project co-founded by the Erasmus+ Programme, which aims to contribute to behavioural changes in people’s preferences, consumption habits and lifestyles, in line with the environmental policies adopted by the European Commission: the circular economy action plan, waste management policies and the present challenge of “making European recovery a Green Deal”.

As the CARE project approaches its culmination, partners met to reflect on the achievements and collaborative efforts that have characterized the CARE project’s journey and set the final steps. The Consortium is currently working on the collection and assessment of sustainable business ideas through PROMOBIZ a unique and cutting-edge technique for the filtering of business ideas that combines economic feasibility with social and environmental viability.

Moreover, partners set a work plan for the finalisation and promotion on a wide scale of the CARE Green Book collecting key findings of the project activities and offering a valuable collection of data, evidences and initiatives to inform new policies and further research.

The CARE project has been instrumental in bringing together diverse perspectives to tackle pressing issues related to responsible consumption. The Closing Meeting provided a forum to reflect on the achievements and discuss strategies for continued impact. As the project concludes, the CARE Consortium remains committed to championing sustainable practices and responsible consumption in the local communities.
