About the project "Recycling Heroes"

The sale of electrical and electronic equipment is constantly increasing and, accordingly, e-waste has already become the fastest growing waste stream in the world. Our society must immediately address this challenge to ensure a more sustainable management of our planet's resources and curb environmental pollution.

The Sparkling Science project aims to raise awareness about e-waste, especially among students but also in society in general. To achieve this, the project combines principles of the circular economy with citizen science methods.
