The International Upcycle Festival 2020 is organized by Indonesian Upcycle Forum (IUF) in collaboration with a number of institutions/organizations. The ultimate objectives of the Festival are to find solutions for plastic waste and to build public awareness about the importance of a more responsible use of plastic.
This festival is not only to serve the purpose of festivity, but more importantly it constitutes various activities in education, knowledge and information exchange, art showcase, and furthermore fostering eco-business entrepreneurship to pursuit its ultimate objectives.
It is well understood that waste issue, particularly plastic waste, is very complex and must be handled comprehensively from various angles. For this, we propose upcycle concept. Upcycle itself has the meaning of adding value to an object or material with the following behaviour: Reduce (reducing the use) - Reuse - Repair (repairing damaged goods) - Refuse (refuse to buy or to consume) - Rethink (rethinking to buy or to consume) - Recycle.
