The project integrates the Environmental Education and Research and Development components, focusing on the development of growing kits created from post-consumption textile waste, education, training and awareness-raising actions in schools, the mapping of local products to create a database accessible to traders, hoteliers and the community, and the assessment of the chemical safety of food produced in school and/or community gardens.

360.come is also committed to the creation of an e-book with 12 recipes from Guimarães chefs, a manual of good practices for canteens and training and awareness-raising actions for the community.

The project has an overall budget of €48,532.88, with €33,973.02 being financed by the Environmental Fund.


Environmental Education

The 360.come project covers 15 EB2/3 schools in the municipality of Guimarães and 15 pilot classes.

During the 2022-2023 school year, sessions will be held in a school environment, with a focus on the circular economy, namely in food, in order to raise awareness and promote changes in behaviour aimed at reusing waste, reducing food waste, healthy eating and sustainable agricultural practices.

A total of 5 training sessions will be provided with the following key themes: Calculation of Individual Footprint; Healthy and Sustainable Food; Quality of Soils; Circular Economy in Food and Showcooking at school. The food waste produced in the canteens by the students of the classes involved will also be monitored.

Also in the environmental education component, training sessions will be held for teachers on the theme of the project and a Manual of Good Practices for Canteens will be created.

For the community, lectures and showcookings on the project theme will be recommended.

Micro-vegetable cultivation kit

The cultivation kit created for the 360.come project was developed by To Be Green from post-consumer textile waste, being a clear bet on innovation with a view to promoting and disseminating good circular economy practices and encouraging home-grown, accessible and organic cultivation.

E-book and recipes from Vimaranenses chefs

The 360.come project aims to instigate behavioural change through the use of innovative communication strategies that reinforce the importance of healthy eating, reducing food waste, proximity consumption and the transition to a circular economy. In this sense, an E-book was developed with original recipes, developed by renowned Chefs from Guimarães, who combine creativity and less conventional ingredients, such as micro-vegetables, in a journey towards health and sustainability.

Research & Development

In R&D, the 360.come project will assess the chemical safety of food produced in the Guimarães educational garden and the surrounding environment, as well as mapping local producers, with a view to creating a database to be disseminated by local retailers, restaurants and hotels.

Additionally, a Manual of Best Practices and Recommendations for more sustainable agricultural practices will be prepared.
