    BEACON - Grünes Wachstum: Arbeitsplätze durch Bio-Ökonomie

    31/03/2014

    Das Projekt „BEACON“ stellt sich einer großen Herausforderung für Europa: Es entwickelt neue Technologien zur Deckung des wachsenden Bedarfs an Energie und Ressourcen. Das Projekt konzentriert sich auf Bioraffinerie: ein Prozess, bei dem nicht als Lebensmittel bestimmte Feldfrüchte genutzt werden, um Biomasse zu erzeugen, die wiederum anstelle von Rohöl weiterverarbeitet wird. Durch die Produktion erneuerbarer Erzeugnisse aus Biomasse bietet das Projekt eine grüne Alternative zu umweltverschmutzenden fossilen Brennstoffen und hilft Europa, seine Treibhausgasemissionen zu senken. Diese von Pioniergeist getragene Initiative lenkt Investitionen in eine der ärmsten Regionen des Vereinigten Königreichs und schafft enorm wichtige Arbeitsplätze und Know-how auf höchstem Niveau.

In diesem bahnbrechenden Projekt wurden fast 130 junge Menschen ausgebildet, von denen viele durch schwerwiegende Probleme, wie Straffälligkeit, Drogen- und Medikamentenmissbrauch, psychische Erkrankungen oder Behinderungen, belastet sind. Jedes Jahr investiert das Projekt etwa 1,2 Mio. EUR in die lokale Wirtschaft und unterstützt dadurch örtliche Lieferanten und die Produktion hochwertiger Lebensmittel auf lokaler Ebene.

    13/06/2012Testimonial of Trixie Neilson from GRaBS project. Urban 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. Winner of RegioStars 2012 Award - SUSTAINABLE GROWTH category

    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
