As the URBAN-WASTE project approaches its end in May this year, Brussels will host the project’s final conference titled “Waste Management in Tourism. Does it even matter?” organised by ACR+, on 7 May 2019 at the Balsamine theatre.
This year’s Ecomondo fair in Rimini, Italy, saw a quite significant participation of the URBAN–WASTE project which was present at both “Sustainability evaluation in waste management” seminar and EASME’s info day.
After a long summer which is actually still bringing a lot of tourists to some of our pilot cities and regions the URBAN-WASTE series of webinars is to come back exploring and presenting some good practices and how to communicate them to different target groups – on 20 November at 11.30 CET
The Sicilian city of Syracuse, as one of the project’s pilot cities, had the pleasure to host the 9th Mutual Learning event on “Marketing Measures and Communicating Good Practices to Different Target Groups” and the accompanying Municipality Forum which gathered not only our own pilots but other exemplary cities as well as local attention.
While the implementation phase of eco-innovative measures is in full swing in the project’s 11 pilot cities, the Municipality of Syracuse will welcome the representatives of these 11 cities and regions in order to discuss marketing measures and communicating good practices to different target groups.
The Greek city of Kavala, also one of the 11 pilot cities of the URBAN-WASTE project, hosted the 8th of 11 foreseen meetings of the project consortium in order to review the progress of the pilot’s measures implementation phase and exchange practices and challenges related to marine litter
The three piece webinar series on gender mainstreaming in waste management ended this week providing the project consortium and external audience with a reflection on what role gender plays in communication activities, budgeting and reporting.
