W_UP Tour are defined as a mixture of raising awareness tours and change-making actions organised by 3 European and 3 Asian non-profit organisations working on the field, with the purpose of: offering quality-learning experiences to international participants; raising awareness at international and local level on waste issues; financially supporting non-profit organisations and local communities through social entrepreneurship; helping the local community to manage better manage the waste. By valuing the know-how of the partners involved, the project aims to enhance the organisations’ competencies to host and implement change-making experiences on waste upcycling with common quality standards, and to develop an innovative sustainable entrepreneurial concept, based on non-formal education principles, to make positive impact in local communities. The W_UP tour will be implemented in each partner country and it will involve between 10 international participants traveling with 5 to 6 youth workers from the consortium. The Tour will last 12 days and will be focused on waste upcycling for entrepreneurial activities. During the trip the participants will discover the local context on waste management together with local community and stakeholders dealing with it, like experts, local NGOs, public institutions, local school and local people, to perform educational activities with young people, campaigns and workshops on waste upcycling. In the last days of the W_UP Tour a dissemination event with local authorities and relevant stakeholders will be organized to present the outcomes of the mobility and raise awareness in the local communities.
