  • Trolleybus Gdynia: CityStar: Transports publics urbains durables

    Trolleybus Gdynia: CityStar: Transports publics urbains durables

    31/03/2014

    Ce projet vise à améliorer le système de réseau de trolleybus à Gdynia, en Pologne. Les fonds européens ont permis à la ville d'acheter 28 nouveaux trolleybus modernes, peu polluants et accessibles pour tous. Les objectifs directs du projet sont d'accroître la compétitivité des transports publics à faible émission de CO² et d'améliorer la qualité du service des transports publics urbains. Ces améliorations ont reconstruit l'image du transport public à Gdynia, provoquant une augmentation du nombre de passagers, tout en créant des avantages directs pour les habitants et l'économie locale.

    Fifteen Cornwall - Croissance inclusive: créer de l’emploi pour les jeunes générations

    31/03/2014

    Une passion pour la cuisine transforme la vie des jeunes dans l'une des régions les plus pauvres de l'Angleterre. Inspiré par le célèbre chef Jamie Oliver, Fifteen Cornwall est plus qu'un restaurant: il s'agit ici d'une entreprise sociale qui offre une chance aux jeunes défavorisés, âgés de 16 à 24 en leur offrant la possibilité de se former à l'art de la cuisine. Cette initiative innovatrice a formé près de 130 jeunes, dont nombreux faisaient face à de graves problèmes tels que la toxicomanie, la maladie mentale, un passé criminel ou un handicap. 89 des élèves de Cornwall ont obtenu leur diplôme comme chefs et plus de 90% sont encore employés comme chef aujourd'hui. Chaque année, le projet investit environ 1,2 million d'euros dans l'économie locale et contribue ainsi à la création d'emplois dans le secteur touristique de la région.

    Art on Chairs

    31/03/2014

    L'industrie du meuble a été pendant des années l'une des activités économiques les plus importantes de la ville de Paredes. En effet, la ville connaît la plus forte concentration d'usines de chaise en Europe et représente 65% de la production de meubles au Portugal. Malgré le fait que l'industrie était autrefois très productive, jusqu'il y a quelques années, son image était considérée comme démodée et conservatrice. Art on Chairs a apporté un vent de renouveau dans cette industrie de meubles traditionnels en réunissant les sociétés productrices avec le monde du design pour transformer ses chaises en œuvres d'art. Cette coopération fructueuse entre les designers et les PME locales a mené à la production de chaises avec un design de qualité, a renouvelé la fierté de la région dans le domaine du meuble, a stimulé la créativité dans le secteur de la fabrication, a augmenté la productivité et a contribué à une augmentation des exportations internationales.

    Le projet BEACON cherche des solutions pour faire face à un défi majeur pour l'Europe et le monde entier: le développement de technologies innovantes pour répondre à la demande croissante d'énergie et de ressources. Le projet se concentre sur le bio-raffinage: un processus qui transforme des plantes "non alimentaires" en produits d'utilisations, sans l'utilisation de combustibles fossiles polluants. En produisant des produits renouvelables issus de la biomasse, BEACON offre une alternative écologique aux combustibles fossiles polluants et aide l'Europe à réduire ses émissions de gaz CO². BEACON aide également les entreprises à commercialiser les produits issus de leurs recherches à grande échelle. Cette initiative pionnière attire maintenant des investissements de partout dans le monde vers une des régions rurales les plus pauvres du Royaume-Uni. Ainsi, elle aide également à la création d'emplois, vitaux pour contribuer à la croissance de cette région.

    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.

    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.

    13/06/2012Testimonial of Bledi Zuta, the SÖM project There 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 Regiostars 2012 Award, Citystar category
