The project is funded by the European Union, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Finland in the framework of South-East Finland-Russia CBC 2014-2020 Programme.

LALAPETE aims to bring positive change into the current situation in environmental awareness and circular economy. Aim is to change the current situation in environmental education and create educational material for kindergartens, schools and holiday homes.

Also, to research environmental awareness of the citizens and to organise international workshops, seminars and training events to increase the awareness of environmental protection, climate change mitigation and sustainable lifestyle.

In the field of circular economy, aim is to have cross border cooperation, share knowledge and make a road map for transition to the circular economy. In addition, the aim is to boost public opinion of products made of recycled materials, to show they are high-quality and exchange ideas of new products and services.

To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

Lastly, to create joint information system for quick exchange of information on the topics mentioned above.
