Innovation in the use of upcycling techniques:

The innovation of this project lies in the way creative upcycling is used to teach important skills and
values to young people. Using old bicycle components to create new artistic and functional objects
provides a sustainable way to reuse materials. Using these techniques we want to teach youth and
youth workers to promote the transmission of knowledge and skills in a collaborative way. The main objectives of this project, is to organise upcycling workshops, that promotes creativity, , innovation and sustainability.
