The city of Syracuse hosted its 2nd CoP event on 9 October, engaging local authorities, citizens, waste management authorities, the craft worker association, tourist association, schools and restaurants.
Last 28 September, the 2nd Community of Practices (CoP) event took place in Lisbon, organized by the municipality in partnership with Neya Hotel and Jerónimo Martins Company, with 39 different stakeholders attending, including hotels, NGOs, Lisbon Public Space and Waste Management Departments.
The URBAN-WASTE project will be presented at the EcoFesta, Fare e Comunicare, which will take place in Augusta, Syracuse on 29 September, 2017 within the workshop “private public synergy: demand and supply (from GPP to Mass Retail actions) against food waste“.
The Regional Authority of Epirus and TERNA Energy signed a contract for the mechanical biological treatment (MBT) plant in the Epirus Region, after the approval of the Greek Court of Auditors, last July.
The first Community of Practices event within the project framework was held on 1 April in Copenhagen, organised by the Municipality of Copenhagen which now deserves the title of the icebreaker, as the other 11 pilot cities and regions are in the middle of organising theirs.
