Kennisland is looking for the most innovative ideas that tackle plastic waste!

For this year's European Social Innovation Competition we’re looking for projects, products, services, business models and collaborations that tackle plastic waste. Out of all entries 30 semi-finalists will be selected. They will receive a package of support from experienced social innovators to turn their idea into a viable venture. The 3 most promising ideas receive 50.000 Euro prize money to further the development of their ideas!

We're looking for ideas from one or more of the following fields:
- Reducing the consumption of single use plastic products
- Recycling, reusing, and upcycling existing plastic waste
- Dealing with accumulated plastic waste in landfills and the environment
- Changing consumer behaviours, retail and wider business practices to reduce levels of plastic waste and/or increase recycling and re-use
- Implementing alternative business models and optimising supply chains to reduce plastic waste and/or increase recycling and re-use
- Introducing new materials fit for a circular economy or that offer sustainable alternatives to fossil-based plastics
