Challenge / Goal

The SSA sought to reduce waste and to test an operational model for a circular resource centre together with NAV, local youths, local services and voluntary associations. Furthermore it sought to involve the local community & secure citizen participation at an early stage in the development of a circular resource centre. 


The city wants to establish a circular resource centre at an old barn in the Nedre Trosterud farm but a large amount of rehabilitation work is required. Rehabilitation and building permits are time consuming, which “forced” the city team and their stakeholders to think creatively and test ideas before the physical space is up and running. The action aimed to reduce waste by prolonging the life of existing objects through reuse, redesign and repair activities. At the same time the action sought to support local work opportunities and job creation, while improving the attractiveness, vibrancy and safety of the environment for the local population at Trosterud district.
