Official Opening of the Center for Textile Recycling in Uzice

The Centre for textile recycling was officially opened in Uzice today,  in the presence of numerous guests. The Center  is the result of  many years of efforts of  the Association  named The Women's Center  in order  to achieve  the economic strengthening of women, promotion of women's creations, creativity and care for the community. The premises of the  Centre have been renovated and adequately equipped thanks to the  project Textile Recycling for Sustainable Solutions, which is funded by the European Union within the Cross-border Programme Serbia - Montenegro. In the workshop of  the Center  it is planned to start up a mini production of items made of used textile and to employ  10 women who have acquired the necessary skills through the same project.

In order to utilize the Center's capacities in the best possible way, the Zlatibor Regional Development Agency,  in collaboration with the Art School in Uzice and the designer of the  brand  named Superheroine nice girl, organized a competition in which the school students created preliminary  designs for souvenirs made of textile. The idea for the use of used textiles for the promotion of tourism potential s  of Western Serbia region, is a  part of the activities within the  project SMART INNO  which Zlatibor  RDA has been  implementing  within the IPA Adriatic CBC Programme. The intention of the organizers of the event was to merge the two European projects and to  achieve better results  and thus  to promote this socially and environmentally responsible idea in  a better way.

The official opening of the Centre was also used to mark the  International Women's Day, March 8th,  as a symbol of the struggle for economic, labor and political rights of women, with a particular emphasis on the importance of the role of textile  female workers in that  struggle.
