Corepla (National Consortium for the Collection and Recycling of Plastic packages)
Corepla is the national consortium for the collection, recycling and recovery of plastic packages, established in accordance with law decree 22/97 and currently regulated by Law Decree 152/06.

With approximately 2.600 member companies belonging to the plastic packaging supply chain (producers of plastic material, producers of plastic packaging, users who self-produce their packaging, companies that recycle or recover plastic packaging waste), Corepla guarantees that the plastic packagings collected in 7,000 Italian Municipalities are recycled and recovered with efficiency, effectiveness and economy.

Communication is part of the Consortium's institutional aims, which is committed to foster a culture of responsibility and civic engagement concerning the management of plastic packaging waste. For this purpose, the creation of the Special Prize represents a moment of further awareness, as well as an opportunity for Corepla to turn to an art capable of enhancing the properties, energy and intelligence of plastic, stimulating the creation of networks and opportunities among artists, businesses, territories and citizens.

Ca' Foscari University of Venice
Since 2010 Ca' Foscari University of Venice, through the Ca' Foscari Sostenibile program, has been promoting sustainability, including it as a perspective within all the University's activities.
Every year Ca' Foscari is committed to encourage actions and behaviors that reduce the impact of the university on the environment and natural resources, and to promote community welfare, social equity and economic development.
Moreover, the Venetian University creates engagement projects for internal stakeholders and for the entire community, involving diverse subjects - local, national and international - in order to promote the dissemination of a model of sustainable development, through the exchange of best practices and the union of different scientific and operational skills.

    CoReVe is the non-profit Consortium that aims to achieve the goals of recycling and recovery of glass packaging waste produced in Italy. It has been established on 23rd October 1997 by the main glass companies in compliance with the Legislative Decree 22/97 to organize the recovery of the glass waste which come from the separate collection, in order to set up the guidelines for the prevention activities and to ensure the recycling of recovered glass. In particular CoReVe deals with information about recycling and glass recovery issues which are useful for citizens and it organizes the specific prevention plan with the guidelines to reach the recycling goals.
    The Consortium considers the communication activities for citizens extremely important, as citizens are the protagonists of the waste separate collection. According to this concept, the ideation of the special prize wants to create another occasion for the recycling awareness.
    The works’ originality and effect will be important as they have to represent the glass features, a material that is the circular economy’s perfect representation.
