Supporting Sustainable Community in Päijät-Häme, Finland

The Citizen Involvement in Circular Economy Implementation (CECI) project aims to improve related regional policies. The Interreg Europe co-funded project connects eight partners from six countries: Finland, France, Spain, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, and Belgium.Two partners from Finland participate in the project, LAB University of Applied Sciences, which acts as a lead partner, and the Regional Council of Päijät-Häme as the project partner representing public authority.

Through interregional cooperation, CECI collects and shares already-tested good practices to inspire other regions to implement them to boost the circular economy and emphasise the role of citizens in its implementation. These successful practices, knowledge exchange and site visits, serve as a
base for designing action plans in all partner regions.
