    BEACON - Crescimento sustentável: trabalho através da bio-economia

    31/03/2014

    Regiões do Oeste e dos Vales do País de Gales – Reino Unido

    O projeto «BEACON» enfrenta um desafio importante para a Europa: desenvolver novas tecnologias por forma a dar resposta à crescente procura de energia e de recursos. O projeto centra-se na biorrefinação: um processo que utiliza culturas não-alimentares para criar biomassa para utilizar em produtos, em substituição do petróleo bruto. Ao produzir produtos renováveis a partir de biomassa, o projeto «Beacon» representa uma alternativa verde aos combustíveis fósseis poluentes, ajudando a Europa a reduzir as suas emissões de gases com efeito de estufa. Esta iniciativa pioneira está a atrair investimentos para uma das regiões mais pobres do RU, criando postos de trabalho extremamente necessários e desenvolvendo competências mais avançadas.

    13/06/2012There is no simple solution for regenerating run-down urban areas. But in South East Malmö, Sweden, a neighbourhood with a population of 80 000, the SÖM project offered an outstanding example of how measures working together can bring new hope to a depressed community. The project started by analysing the needs of local people in four of Malmö’s poorer areas. This generated 10 projects on issues such as social integration, local growth and job creation. Partnership was key to success, so the project built a network of public and private participants; contacting businesses, universities, property owners, NGOs and community groups. Within a year, they created a coordination platform to ensure the best use of EU structural funding. Winner of the RegioStars 2012 Award, Citystar 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.

    Georgina MacLeod, the O4O project

    13/06/2012Testimonial of Georgina MacLeod about the O4O project. People 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.
