C2C Network5 november 2010: The C2C network brings together EU regions to share and capitalise on regional good practice in implementing C2C principles in relation to waste prevention and management, and do so by producing sustainable solutions, economic development opportunities and social well-being.

Partners of the C2CN: Province of Limburg (NL) – Flemish Public Waste Agency (OVAM) (BE) – Metropolitan Milan Development Agency (IT) – Department for Economic and Tourism Development of the City of Graz (AT) – ARDI Regional Agency for Development and Innovation Design Center (FR) – Kainuun Etu Ltd (FI) – West-Transdanubian Regional Development Agency (WTRDA) (HU) – Suffolk County Council (UK) – North-East Regional Development Agency (RO) – Goverment Office for Development and European Affairs (SI)

8 juli 2010: Mooi hoor.  In Maastricht is de officiële aftrap gegeven voor het Cradle to Cradle Network. C2CN, zoals de afkorting luidt, is een groot Europees project, waarvan Limburg de leadpartner is.

10 november 2009: De Europese Unie heeft een aanvraag van het Cradle to Cradle Network gehonoreerd met een bijdrage van 1,9 miljoen euro in de totale projectkosten van 2.479.000 euro. De rest van het geld wordt opgebracht door de deelnemende regio’s. De Provincie Limburg draagt daarvan 100.000 euro bij. Een Cradle to Cradle inventarisatie in 2010 en 2011 moet leiden tot plannen met concrete acties die na die twee jaar omgezet kunnen worden in gangbare maatregelen op weg naar een duurzame samenleving.

Het netwerk wordt gevromd door de Provincie Limburg en negen andere Europese regio’s, van Finland tot Italië en van het Verenigd Koninkrijk tot Roemenië, die samen concrete voorbeelden gaan verzamelen hoe producten, gebouwen en gebieden duurzaam en schoon kunnen worden vormgegeven op een dusdanige wijze dat bedrijven, designers en wetenschappers de mogelijkheid biedt om op Cradle to Cradle gebied nieuwe zaken te ontwikkelen en te produceren.

De Provincie Limburg heeft als een van de eerste Europese regio’s een bijzondere vorm van duurzame ontwikkeling omarmd, Cradle to Cradle. Zie ook: INTERREG IVC-project tilt Cradle to Cradle Network naar Europees Niveau

    Launch Cradle to Cradle Network

    European regions play a key role in implementing the Europe 2020 strategy. They have a role in promoting sustainability and innovation in the EU. Sustainable development is being approached in a number of ways that depend on the objective and the scale of the activity concerned. “Cradle to Cradle” (C2C) evokes its own antithesis in “cradle to grave” and provides the framework for a breakthrough. The C2C idea provides both a challenge and motivation for a move towards sustainability in a recycling society.

    William A. McDonough and Michael Braungart developed the original C2C concept, with the idea of getting things right first time, rather than making up for mistakes later. The C2C philosophy, which has its focus on recycling in closed loops, is an idea that can both contribute to economic development and reduce reliance on raw materials; thus allowing society to make better use of the restricted space available and ensuring less environmental pollution. It is part of a move to a sustainable, environmentally balanced society. C2C does not view the challenge of sustainability as a burden to be avoided, but looks for business opportunities in transforming the process of economic innovation and growth. This win-win situation is emphasised by the goals of the Cradle to Cradle Network and therefore, provides a sound basis for the European Commission to prioritise the C2CN project with a fast track status. Apart from financial support, the European Commission will actively participate in the project.

    A project summary
    The C2C network brings together EU regions to share and capitalise on regional good practice in implementing C2C principles in relation to waste prevention and management, and do so by producing sustainable solutions, economic development opportunities and social well-being. Meetings of experts, studies of the prospects of each of the four predefined thematic target areas and transfer workshops will ultimately result in the transformation of good practice into plans of action. Results from the project will also contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy of the European Commission given the priority the EC has given to this project including their active participation. We will become the ambassadors of the eco-effective heritage!

    The C2C network will establish the following tactical and operational goals:
    •Creating a European platform for gathering and disseminating knowledge on C2C;
    •Drawing up plans of action, in which we demonstrate to the EU, its member states, regions and relevant organizations how C2C can be formulated and implemented regionally and how this procedure can produce sustainable solutions, economic growth opportunities (innovation) and social well-being;
    •Establishing links with regional policy objectives, specifically with regional competitiveness and employment targets and with European territorial cooperation initiatives;
    •Promoting regional stakeholder involvement.
    The priorities (target areas) selected are:
    •Industry (products, production processes & design and product service systems);
    •Area-specific spatial development (including infrastructure, regional and industrial networking);
    •Building design (architecture);
    The project is designed into two phases. Phase 1 mainly focuses on the transferability of the already identified good practices within the selected priorities (target areas). Phase 2 addresses the development of regional actions plans, which are supported by both regional and joint activities. In the end, the project produces 10 regional action plans, a Good Practice Handbook and a Guide on Waste Management & C2C, which is also of great value for other parties concerned outside the partnership.

    The partnership comprises 10 partners. Partners bring different level of development in the field of C2C
    •Province of Limburg (NL)
    •Flemish Public Waste Agency (BE)
    •Milano Metropoli Development Agency (IT)
    •Department for Economic and Tourism Development of the City of Graz (AT)
    •Regional Agency of Development and Innovation Design Centre (FR)
    •Kainuun Etu ltd (FI)
    •West Transdanubian Regional Development Agency Non-profit Limited Liability Company (HU)
    •Suffolk County Council (UK)
    •North-East Regional Development Agency (RO)
    •Government Office for Development and European Affairs (SI)

    Waste is food: going all the way on sustainability

    Ten European regions have created a network to share best practice in waste prevention and management by applying the cradle-to-cradle concept for sustainable development. The idea that there is no such thing as waste, only raw materials yet to be put to good use, underpins the cradle-to-cradle (C2C) concept being promoted by ten European regions. Their approach is apt. The EU 2020 strategy calls for smart, sustainable and inclusive economic growth. One of its seven flagship initiatives is to create a more resource-efficient Europe and Environment commissioner Janez Poto?nik is preparing a roadmap for 2011 to achieve this.

    The Cradle to Cradle Network (C2CN) was born in July 2010 in Limburg when representatives from all ten partner regions and the European Commission inaugurated this EU-funded Interregional co-operation programme (INTERREG IVC) project. This is a fast-track project with Commission guidance and investment.

    The network’s goal is to enable EU regions to share and capitalise on best practice in implementing C2C principles for waste prevention and management, and ultimately to drive eco-innovation, sustainable development and social and economic well-being. Funding of €3 million is behind the initiative which will run until the end of 2011.

    There are four main deliverables:
    Creating a European platform for sharing experience on C2C;
    Drawing up action plans showing how C2C policies can be designed and implemented, and, importantly, what they can deliver;
    Establishing links with regional policy goals, especially in the fields of competitiveness and employment; and
    Promoting stakeholder involvement.

    The concept of C2C is broad and the network is studying its application well beyond traditional industrial processes. As well as its role in industry, the value of C2C principles in area-specific spatial planning and building design are on the agenda. The network will also examine what form of governance can get the most out of the C2C concept. Source: European Union

    A Journey from Cradle to Cradle: C2C Network Initiatives Guide Published

    The C2C Network proudly presents ‘A Journey from Cradle to Cradle. C2CN Initiatives Guide’. The guide (aka the good practice handbook) can best be seen as a catalogue of C2C related practices that are being planned and or happening in Europe.

    The cases in this initiatives guide come from stakeholders who understand that we need to go beyond eco-efficiency and have departed on their journey towards eco-effectiveness.

    Interview with Michael Braungart about C2C Network Limburg

    Interesting interview with Michael Braungart in which he talks about the C2C Network. The C2C network brings together EU regions to share and capitalise on regional good practice in implementing C2C principles in relation to waste prevention and management, and do so by producing sustainable solutions, economic development opportunities and social well-being.

    The Cradle to Cradle Network C2CN seeks your input

    The next stage for the project is to find stakeholders interested in learning from and embedding elements of the good practice examples from other regions into the East of England. These ‘transfers’ can be modest or grand in scale – from a simple transfer of knowledge right through to developing a whole new project based on one of the good practices. The Cradle to Cradle Network will provide the means necessary to ‘transfer’ elements of these examples. Any party or individual with an interest to learn more about any of the examples and the benefits of employing a ‘Cradle to Cradle’ approach should contact Suffolk County Council.
