    Description: In cooperation with the WEEE Forum we want to show the level of knowledge of consumers worldwide regarding e-waste recycling. We want to illustrate that there are different levels of knowledge so we would like correct/positive answers alongside incorrect/negative answers. The videos, filmed on the streets of different cities, will be compiled in a single short film divided into short sections (one per question).

    Public Campaign - Social media, School campaign or collection

    Description: The WEEE4Future campaign, aims at engaging people to count, characterize, collect and contribute their e-waste in four target cities/regions, leveraging the EIT RawMaterials partner network. The target audience is school and university students (14-24 year olds), with a KPI of engaging with 7,000 households across the four cities. The project will initially run until the end of 2020, with launch taking place end of September. The aim is to gamify the process of collecting e-waste through use of a website, allowing schools or groups to enter details on e-waste found in their homes.  The project also gives access to educational content around the materials found in different electronics in order to raise awareness and increase understanding of e-waste issues and the importance of recycling; this will be structured around three modules:  Module 01 The E-Waste Dilemma
    • Definition
    • Category and type
    • Composition and mass balance
    Module 02 The E-Waste Solution
    • E-Waste management system
    • E-Waste treatment process
    Module 03 E-Recycling Benefits
    • Separated materials
    • New life for materials
    Final disposal of hazardous and non recyclable materials The target group is young, diverse and active. We will use social media to reach them ; we will roll out a communications campaign once the website is ready involving social media ads for generation Z, targeted ads to reach out to teachers and direct ads on instagram.

    Workshop

    Description: Gamenight at adelphi: In the Loop – Unravelling e-waste and the circular economy in a playful way "Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand.” In this workshop at adelphi in connection with International eWaste Day, we will to unravel the basics of the Circular Economy and e-waste management by playing an interactive board game called In the Loop. By presenting today’s resource-related challenges in a fun and engaging way, In the Loop simulates complex, global resource supply chains and triggers players to find solutions - all in less than 90 minutes. The objective is simple: players take on the role of a manufacturing company and try to be the first to seven ‘Progress Points’ by collecting resources and building products. But, in this uncertain world, how much progress will your company make? You will face difficult strategic decisions as you navigate through constricted resource mines and unpredictable world events. Should you collaborate with competitors, invest in mining new materials, or change your business model? We will provide a brief introduction into the game’s mechanics and have a Skype call with the creator Katie Whalen for a brief Q&A. And, of course, we will play the game!

With this challenge we want to create awareness that WEEE doesn't belong in the normal waste and that WEEE can and should be taken to the correct places to a) contribute to the circular economy and gain materials b)increase the amount of takebacks and c)be disposed correctly reducing environmental and social risks We have spread the message #WEEEcleanup in different channels as Twitter and LinkedIn. We also challenge other companies to share the challenge with their customers.

    Description: On 3rd of September 2020 we started participating on the collection project of the non-profit organization NABU, which is collecting smartphones and donating part of the generated revenues to the NABU insect protection fund to protect the habitat of bumblebees, bees and other insects. By using our social media campaign #whattheschrott we want to reach our society and motivate all of us to GO GREEN. The creation of awareness that unused electronics shouldn’t be hoarded at home as they include valuable materials, which can be recovered by correct recycling, is our key topic. The incentives for correct electronics recycling and the results of our NABU smartphone collection will be addressed by CIRECON on our social media channels and on our newly created website https://cirecon.de/gogreen/ during the International E-waste Day 2020.

    Description: In support of the 2019 INTERNATIONAL E-WASTE day Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) will publish an educational blogpost on our website about why E-Waste Collection is important. This post will be shared via the SRS social media channels and newsletter in an effort to inform as many people as possible about the message. Our colleagues are requested to share the social media posts within their own social media channels. Furthermore SRS will donate trees for every ton (1000KG) of E-Waste delivered into our recycling sites on 14th of October, 2019. This Sims - “E-Waste for Trees” - program will plant two trees per ton, one tree will be planted in Europe and the second one in Africa. Trees and Recycling E-Waste both contribute to a significant reduction of CO2 emissions. Trees capture CO2 emissions, and using recovered E-Waste materials as raw-material in the production process of new products reduces the usage of energy and CO2 emissions significantly. The activities will take place in: The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Austria, United Arab Emirates, South Africa.
