Cradle to Cradle Islands (C2C Islands)

Description

  

The islands in the North Sea Region are facing many common problems: geographical isolation, a lack of local resources (energy, materials, water supply), high tourism pressure on resources and the environment by tourists and declining populations.

 

This project aims to contribute to environmental sustainability and economic development of eight islands in the North Sea Region by:

  1. applying Cradle to Cradle concept to develop energy responsible and sustainable solutions for island environments
  2. using islands as labs and testing grounds for sustainable innovations
  3. developing networks of stakeholders to ensure transferability and dissemination of project results on the themes water, energy and materials

 

The project runs from the 1st of January 2009 till the summer of 2012 and has 22 different partners from 6 countries around the North Sea Region. Other Danish partners in the project are Samsø Energy Academy and the Municipality of Norddjurs (Anholt).
