The Plastics Strategy, which is part of the European Commission’s Circular Economy Package, aims to ensure that all plastic packaging is recyclable by 2030.
True to this year’s motto "It’s Time to Think Outside the Box", the Artic Desgin Week seeks to inspire new ways of looking at design and business models by presenting innovative design talks, workshops and design exhibitions – including International Design Center Berlin’s travelling exhibition "Reconsider Design".
The meeting addressed the current relationship between politics, economics and design, and built upon the experiences of the attendees. The focus was mainly Spanish design issues, but international design was also discussed.
A new project funded by Erasmus+ will enhance the creation and consumption of sustainable products and services, aligned with European Circular Economy policies.
The European Union have revised the Circular Economy package; through this latest Position paper and related actions, BEDA can strengthen its position as the design authority at European Commission level.
