ECOStep Youth Project

- The overall competition winner was announced on the 19th June at a Design Expo at the Rediscovery Centre. See images below!
- An interactive web documentary will be launched to educate people about reuse, and showcase careers in this space, later in the summer of 2018.
ECOStep is funded under the EU ERASMUS+ KA2 programme. It involves engaging youth ambassadors from Ireland, France, Morocco, Spain and Greece to lead teams into an international reuse design competition and an interactive website to communicate green job opportunities and to inspire young people to reuse. Three teams will participate from Ireland.
The project will aim to provide the youth involved with confidence in new professional perspectives, to help them become environmentally aware and committed citizens and to open up new opportunities for them in the creative reuse of waste. The project outcomes will be disseminated at public workshops as well as via the ecostep website here: http://ecostep-youth.eu/ and social media.
