DiMa Lab joins the GreenCCircle project

EKA DiMa Lab has joined forces with ten other partners throughout Europe to work together in empowering the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs) to embrace sustainability and innovation, fostering a transformative journey towards environmentally responsible practices and green skills.

Located all over Europe, in Matera (IT), Rotterdam (NL), Dublin (IE), Kosice (SK), Kouvola (FI), Valladolid (ES), Venezia (IT), Tallinn (EE), Zabrze (PL), Vilniaus (LT), the partnering organisations aim to engage actors within the European Cultural and Creative Industries, encouraging them to transform their mindset, creative processes, and working methods in alignment with the European Green Transition.

Funded by Erasmus+, GreenCCircle is dedicated to ushering in a new era of sustainable development and creative excellence through targeted training, collaborative efforts, and innovative practices. The start of the project has been marked by launching its innovative platform, GreenCCircle.eu.

By developing a comprehensive support scheme, the project focuses on identifying skill gaps, creating targeted training for sustainable skills, and establishing a robust multi-stakeholder ecosystem across 9 countries. This approach not only enhances collaboration and innovation but also aligns with the core principles of the EU Green Deal and the Circular Economy.

The project's ambitious goals include engaging 120 learners in a challenge-based learning path, facilitating cross-industry fertilisation, and developing essential tools for environmental impact assessment and sustainable business practices. A key innovation introduced by GreenCCircle is the role of the Sustainability Facilitator, designed to guide CCIs and other businesses towards greener practices and greater resilience.

GreenCCircle's methodology is collaborative and inclusive, joining forces with Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers, researchers, and businesses. The initiative aims to foster a sustainability-oriented ecosystem through Living Labs, engaging over 200 participants in a shared mission to reduce environmental footprints and promote sustainable business responses to climate change.

This transformative journey is not just about environmental sustainability; it's a comprehensive strategy to improve market outlooks, enhance resilience to economic shocks, and foster a culture of innovation and sustainability within CCIs. By providing tangible insights into the improvement of green and professional attitudes and skills, GreenCCircle is set to make a significant impact on the CCIs and beyond.


GreenCCircle is co-funded by the European Union.
