The Circuit x Plein Publiek project is a collaboration between De Kringwinkel Antwerp (Circuit) and Café Congé (Plein Publiek). The aim is to bring themes around sustainability and circularity in an attractive way to a target audience of 18 to 34 year olds.
We do not only focus on newer topics around re and upcycling, but deliberately keep our scope broad enough to also include more traditional initiatives around reuse, repair activities, lending and sharing. In order to approach sustainability in as many different ways as possible, we also want to highlight themes around food waste, ecological means of transport and conscious consumption.
The carriers for communicating our themes are a Facebook page on which we provide context for relevant sustainability content, an Instagram page on which we stimulate critical thinking through visual stimuli and monthly physical events in our container village on the Plein Publiek site.
We also believe it is important to provide sufficient positive and sustainable alternatives to achieve sustainable behavioural change.

The continued existence of Circuit and Plein Publiek is assured. As of 1 May 2021, Circuit moves into the Palazzo Verde in Antwerp's Nieuw Zuid district. From there it will continue to pave the way for sustainable behavioural change by emphasising positive alternatives.
Plein Publiek will also get a new location, on the Blue Gate site. Stimulating conscious choices among young people through perception and experience is one of the most important spearheads.
