UPcycle 4 better Lifecycle
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Zero waste is not a dream. The nature by itself doesn't create waste. Why should we? Why we are going the opposite way of that the nature has intended us. We do not support inefficient system that creates waste so lets think of changing the waste into a resource. On every project we are trying to reuse the materials so why not to make a project where we can improve all of it on a project so our next projects will be more waste efficient and we can have more products from each project, beside the main idea. Lets change all of that with the project ,,Upcycle 4 better Life cycle", in Bitola and with our creativity give the society an example how far can we go if we reuse what we call waste. With forces joined from 8 countries, 40 participants for recycling and non-recyclig societies we will share the experience of reusing the waste, but not only in the form of raw materials, but also in a form of ready material in its given shape and state and present to the City the tall standing sculpture of how reusing can be useful. Using non-formal methods combined with informal sharing of the culture for kick-starting the creativity process that is wall impregnated in our conciseness. The arts and crafts section will bring it closer to the society the upcycling methods through the presentation in the primary schools and the high schools and motivate the youngsters from early age to think of the waste in a different way. Also lets make some jewelery so it will remind us of the process of upcyclig as a motivation of self employment and create a database (blog) for draining the experience shared and share the new gained one. All in all we want to share this idea not only between the participants but in their wider surrounding and the environment and the business sector whenever the influence can reach through the participants influential social life network. Lets create a self sustaining system leading on for zero waste or at least give the system a little push on this direction. Lets change the way we see the waste and start looking at it as a free resource. Lets be the change. Lets Upcycle for a better life cycle.
