The Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP), based in Wuppertal, Germany is a not-for-profit organisation working on sustainability in various sectors. In Vietnam, they are currently working on a pilot project of circular economy in tourism sector. They organise hybrid workshops with existing tourism SMEs during April-May 2022 in Hue City. The workshops seek to introduce the topic of circular economy in tourism and the related topics such as food waste and marine plastic litter. The planned activities also include a co-creation workshop to ideate and prototype new tourism products that may support the circular economy.
