Citizens Engagement

One of the aims of the upPE-T project is to create awareness amongst European Citizens on plastic recycling and upcycling in order to increase their knowledge of products’ and materials’ upcycling as well as to improve their behaviour and attitude towards drink and food packaging recycling and purchasing.

To achieve this UpPE-T has developed a European citizens’ awareness Platform and a VR mobile app. A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is also available for European citizens, in eight EU languages (English, Italian, Spanish, Serbian, Finnish, German, Greek, Turkish). 

Community awareness events will also be organized for this purpose during the lifetime of the project.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 953214.
