Our MOVECO team has created a mobile exhibition on "The circular economy in the Danube region". It is travelling across various countries along the Danube region. Currently, it is being displayed in Slovenia:
- In October 2018 at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia in Ljubljana
- From November until December 2018 at the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning in Ljubljana
Displaying best practice products, the MOVECO exhibition shows, how companies from the Danube region are successfully putting the vision of a resource-efficient circular economy in the practice. We - twelve MOVECO project partners and four strategic partners from ten countries in the Danube region - are working together to promote knowledge about the circular economy and to improve the framework conditions for circular products and business models in the Danube region.
Trendy bags made of old police uniforms, reusable and eco-friendly plastic moving boxes for rent, modern Bluetooth speakers from vintage radios - these are some innovative alternatives to the current linear ‘throwaway” economy'.
With the exhibition, we provide general information on the circular economy, the EU project MOVECO and the partner organizations involved in the project. Moreover, by displaying circular products and solutions, the exhibition addresses not only people who are already familiar with the concept of circular economy.
The exhibition itself follows a 'zero-waste' approach with modular design: basically, it consists of reusable crates, wooden boards and cable ties - so that much of the materials can easily be returned to the economic cycles at the end of the exhibition.

"Your trash is my treasure" - This is the motto of the EU co-funded project MOVECO. Sixteen partners from ten Danube countries promote transnational cooperation to accelerate the transition to the circular economy.
