The Recan Foundation and the Vinča Belo Brdo Archaeological Site joined forces to promote metal recycling and its positive impact on the eco-stability of our planet. The endless recyclability of metal was the central topic of an event organised in the Barutana in Belgrade.
It provided an opportunity to combine the missions of Recan and Vinča in a unique way. Support was also provided by the EXIT Foundation, part of the renowned festival team with a special focus on environmental protection.
The prehistoric site in Vinča at Belo Brdo hill on the Danube bank represents a globally-recognised archaeological site with artefacts dating from 5300 to 4600 B.C. The Vincan culture made a mark in numerous ways, and the link with the Recan Foundation lies in the fact that Vincan culture was the first to start melting metal. As metals have been recycled so many times throughout history, the molecules that were melted in Vinča for the first time have been in circulation to the present day.
