A Milestone Summer for RESYNTEX and its Communications
- Thursday, 20 September 2018
Along with our partners, the Sustainability Consult Team has been hard at work over the summer months promoting the milestones and developments of the RESYNTEX project. Richard, our Senior Project Manager, facilitated a workshop for the project’s General Assembly in Thessaloniki, Greece. The workshop helped partners strengthen their communication and exploitation strategies around sustainable textile recycling. As the communications lead for the project, Sustainability Consult is responsible for disseminating findings and engaging key stakeholders in an ongoing dialogue on the circular economy and waste.
Other members of the Sustainability Consult Team showcased the project’s circular economy innovations in June, at the Biobased Coatings Conference 2018 and with SUSCHEM stakeholders discussing ‘the Future of Research & Innovation in Europe’ in Brussels. Earlier in the year, Richard presented both RESYNTEX and BIOSKOH – a BBI JU flagship project supported by our communications – to a broad audience during the Green Mind University forum.
We’re not the only ones. The National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) presented at conferences in Austria and the USA to build the case for textile recycling plants. Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) presented during the 91st Textile Institute World Conference at the School of Design in Leeds. Our friends at the Prospex Institute have also been running a series of interactive ‘Citizen Labs’ across Europe, with the support of other project partners as well.
Autumn looks set to be just as busy and no doubt, you will see us soon at a conference or stakeholder event near you! Stay in the loop by signing up for project updates here.
