COM-Circular Organic Management

We support behavioral change at schools around food and organic waste.

Organic waste is a major cause of environmental issues such as landfilling, pollution and climate change. The continuous production of large amounts of waste that contributes to climate change is the main motivation behind this project. We believe that this issue can be solved by changing the behavior of citizens at home, at school and in their daily life through education.

The effort made through the COM (Circular Organic Management) project is based not only on facts but also on the knowledge that the community can really help reduce this significant environmental damage.

The aim of the project is to develop and disseminate a tool that will allow teachers to influence the behavior of young children, parents and the wider community regarding organic waste management. The collaboration among students, parents and schools will help teachers to adopt new approaches and achieve this initial goal.

Each one of the teachers and students participating in the project will acquire the necessary skills and will be able to share with their communities the outcomes of the project through the activities developed as part of it. Teachers and students will learn to use the resources effectively and their input will improve the understanding and experience of everyone else who interacts with them.

The outcomes of the project will reach far beyond its main target groups. And this is because they address the entire community that surrounds the students, including teachers, school administration staff, canteen or kitchen staff, parents and guardians, neighbors/peers, as well as municipal authorities, schools and their neighborhoods.

The project is co-financed by the European Union and incommon participates as a partner along with six other actors.
