CitiComPlastic

The industry is tackling plastic pollution with alternatives, but many of these create pollution themselves. In an attempt to address this problem, CitiComPlastic will co-create solutions for bioplastic waste management, and will do so, working at local level in Oslo (Norway) with vulnerable groups and other community members. Currently, no facilities for bioplastic waste management exist in Oslo, so there is a need for local solutions. Additionally, there is little understanding on how to properly dispose of bioplastic waste, and how it can be effectively biodegraded. Therefore, with the CitiComPlastic project, it is planned to set up a physical composting station for running experiments. Doing so, the aim is to raise awareness about bioplastic waste and how to handle it, demystify the science of composting, and narrow the distance between people and their trash.

The project is implemented by Nabolagshager, an Oslo-based project organization established in 2013. They work with green and social entrepreneurship to promote a shift to sustainable futures and involve as many people as possible in the opportunities around this. Through local initiatives and international collaborative projects, they create multifunctional and bottom up solutions to urban challenges. Internationally, they collaborate with research communities, businesses and the public sector on projects related to urban agriculture, entrepreneurship and circular economies, e.g. PlaceCity – placemaking for sustainable and thriving cities, EdiCitNet – Edible Cities Network, and FoodE – FOOD systems in European cities. Another project is Tak for Maten, an award-winning rooftop garden in Grønland/Oslo. Overall, they provide green jobs for youth, create and maintain rooftops, integrate vulnerable groups and increase biodiversity in the city.
