Description

The students completed a series of activities in gymkhana or parkour format, answering questions and challenges based on the Circular Economy.

The EELISA Circular Community organized the activity “3VIA: A trivia trilogy to enhance knowledge and awareness on the circular economy” in November, as part of Madrid Science and Innovation Week. 3VIA was jointly undertaken by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, the Istanbul Technical University and the Universitatea Politehnica din Bucure?ti, and conceived as an online evening of collaborative learning and research to foster awareness on the circular economy across Europe for the youth.

The event included short informative presentations, quizzes and discussion sessions geared towards first- and second-year university students from diverse countries. Besides a brief presentation of the basics on the concept of the circular economy, and an introduction to the EELISA Alliance, the event consisted of three theme-based trivia involving intro-level questions related to the three main activities promoted by the circular economy: recycle, reuse, and repair. The trivia trilogy was completed with open discussions on circular economy open to all participants in the main session. Up to 64 participants (among them, 44 students) from different universities and countries joined the meeting and formed groups to solve the quizzes.
