Since mid November 2019, ADEMED is proud Member of the PREVENT Waste Alliance. We are excited to cooperate with our new collegues and friends in the PREVENT Working Groups!
ADEMED delivers non-formal hands-on education to Youth and Students in technologies and applied science and aims at extensive use of expertise and experience of the Seniors in development of community.
We consider that the digital world asks for civil society for data-driven projects, activities being designed as processes of consistent and sustained data collection and management. Citizen Science and STEAM education shall empower the communities to act on their own in the fields of education, environmental protection, conservation of biodiversity and to enhance social life by access to modern arts.
As former legal custodian to Natura 2000 sit Cheile Doftanei, ADEMED supported the elaboration of protected area management plan, which includes a review of waste management. ADEMED elaborates proposals to EU Horizon 2020, in partnership with EU and Africa entities in the above domains.
ADEMED is listed in Spencer Foundation Database of organisations active in pedagogy research and is member of European Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition and of EU Artificial Intelligence Alliance and is signatory of San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) and of the Basque Declaration on Smart Cities.
We expect that the international cross-disciplinary cooperation will trigger a vertical transmission from revolutionary design thinking of packaging strategies to the regenerative agriculture and will encourage biobased techology research, both adapted to a broad range of socio-economic models in Europe and around the world.
We enjoy international cooperation to explore innovative ways to support waste generation prevention, conducted as a combination of spreading knowledge about packaging and recycling technologies and taking advantage of opportunities of intervention in the value-chain in order to encourage major changes in consumer behavior.
In our view, the willingness to engage in Circular Economy is a consumer-driven process that lags behind technological advance because of ineherent traditionalist stance of life-style.
Since life-style changes during human lifespan, ranging from childhood to seniority, supporting the process of social adoption of the Circular Economy shall follow changes in the social pattern that occure with grewing up.
Therefore we see the Circular Economy as technological consequence of a the lifelong education that shall disrupt ossified ways of thinking and consumption patterns and consequentely chanel the cognitive efforts towards putting market forces at work in this aim.
