    BEACON - Crecimiento verde: empleo gracias a la bioeconomía

    31/03/2014

    Gales Occidental y Los Valles - Reino Unido

    El proyecto BEACON afronta un reto fundamental en Europa: el desarrollo de nuevas tecnologías para responder a la demanda creciente de energía y recursos. El proyecto se centra en el refinado ecológico: un proceso que utiliza cultivos no alimentarios para crear biomasa destinada a sustituir el petróleo en determinados productos. Con la producción de productos renovables a partir de biomasa, BEACON constituye una alternativa ecológica a los combustibles fósiles contaminantes y contribuye a reducir las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero en Europa. Esta iniciativa pionera está atrayendo inversiones a una de las regiones más pobres del Reino Unido, crea puestos de trabajo vitales y desarrolla conocimientos técnicos avanzados.

  • RegioStars 2012 - INCLUSIVE GROWTH: O4O - Lifelong experience boosts ageing communities

    RegioStars 2012 - INCLUSIVE GROWTH:  O4O - Lifelong experience boosts ageing communities

    13/06/2012People in the EU are living longer than ever, and the proportion of the population aged over 55 is growing all the time. In some rural areas on the fringes of northern Europe, many pensioners live by themselves, and risk becoming isolated and marginalised if public transport and other services are not available and they cannot afford special care. In these remote regions, skilled staff, such as carers and nurses, are often hard to recruit and retain. The O4O project – Older people for Older people – co-financed by the European Union, responded to this challenge, using existing skills and experience within ageing communities. O4O shows older people how they can take responsibility for providing the services they need, and organises support across rural Scotland, Finland, Greenland, Northern Ireland and Sweden. At a time when public spending is under pressure in many parts of the EU, the project demonstrates how vital networks and facilities can be maintained in a way that also encourages older people to stay active and make an important contribution to society. Winner of the RegioStars 2012 Award, Inclusive Growth category

    RegioStars 2012 - SUSTAINABLE GROWTH: GRaBS - Preparing local planning for climate change challenges

    13/06/2012Urban areas are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. To enable European towns and cities to adapt successfully to the challenges of extreme weather and warming temperatures, and to achieve sustainable growth, local people need to be consulted and actively involved in improving their environment. The GRaBS project – Green and Blue Space Adaptation for Urban Areas and Eco-towns – focused on ‘green’ open spaces and ‘blue’ water resources. Trees and grasslands, for example, help to lower temperatures in towns, through evaporation. The project worked with local communities, helping them to improve their own environment and create healthier, safer and more pleasant living spaces for everyone.

    In this video story, Richard Wynn-Ellisan, an engineering student at Llandrillo College in north Wales, tells us how he discovered and joined the Bridge Marine Science Group, supported by the EU as part of the GEMS project (Growth in Environmental Marine Science) and co-funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This experience has enabled him to gain a foothold in the professional sector without waiting until the end of his studies, when he hopes eventually to set up his own wholesale fishing business in the region.
