The proposed event is an international collaboration of four universities under the EELISA Alliance of Universities: İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi (ITU) from Turkey, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna Pisa (SSSA), from Italy, Universitatea Politehnica din Bucureşti (UPB), from Romania and Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) from Spain, in promising a fun night of collaborative learning and research for the youth, to foster awareness on the circular economy across Europe.
3VIA is a two-hour event consisting of short informative presentations, quizzes and discussion sessions geared towards high school and first- and second-year university students. Two first brief presentations will introduce the participants to the basics of the circular economy concept, whereas the last presentation will inform them on the EELISA framework of the European Commission. A quiz method will be employed to invite participants from different backgrounds and locations from European countries to actively partake through three theme-based trivia activities that pique their curiosity and interest in the proposed topics. The mini quizzes involve intro-level questions addressing the three main activities promoted by the circular economy: reduce, reuse and recycle. Each quiz session will be followed by a short semi-structured discussion on the theme accompanied by relevant sources that also hint at the questions asked. The trivia trilogy will be followed by an open discussion on the circular economy, this time open to all participants in the main session. The night will end with the announcement of participant recognitions, and a short informative note on upcoming CIRCULAR EELISA Community opportunities.
Target Audience: High school and university students of 1st and 2nd year
This activity is promoted by professors and researchers from the CIRCULAR EELISA Community and also supported by the ERASMUS+ CIRC.LE project.
