Co-creating strong uptake of REMEDIES for the future of our oceans through deploying plastic litter valorisation and prevention pathways
REMEDIES aims to create a trend on the prevention of plastic through traditional and modern channels, including through citizen science, towards a more plastic-conscious society. Ιt is built around three main pillars of monitoring plastic litter, its collection and valorisation and, the prevention of the distribution of non-degradable plastics. The project focuses on the activation of citizens affected by plastic pollution directly on the shorelines. REMEDIES plans to map out 170 km2 for plastic litter, reach circa 100,000 citizens, collect around 400 tons of plastic waste, and build up plastic prevention pathways through scaling and replication for an equivalent of 3,700 tons of plastic.
CIBOS will design and implement a sustainability impact dashboard leveraging UX-friendly technologies for maximum user engagement and a holistic assessment of the environmental and societal benefits of the circular pathways in REMEDIES. The dashboard will include a user section, to visualise contributions of interested supporters of REMEDIES demonstrations through reward schemes, users can follow and monitor their ‘favourite’ sites and venues of circular activities. Moreover, CIBOS will advance a traceability digital framework for monitoring zero waste cups along their product lifecycle, which it had developed in the frame of DigiCrc Programme for its partner, ANGR.
