Blue Economy-Systemic Design in Lea Artibai


Through Azaro Fundazioa, the Region has become interested in Blue Economy "philosophy" hand in hand with its main driver Gunter Pauli and the region is currently undergoing a process of identifying and implementing environmentally and economically sustainable business projects.

Premises on which the economic model of the Blue Economy is erected:

1. Technologically tested projects with a multicash approach.
2. Projects that avoid intermediaries.
3. Projects designed based on local fabric potentials.
4. Systemic design: methodology-approach for definition and management of projects.
5. We start with the primary sector and look for links with other sectors.
6. Waste 0

……In short, a new approach to re-industrialisation”.
