The Guidelines for City Managers, one of the key deliverables and outputs of the URBAN-WASTE project will see the daylight on May 29 at 11.30, when its authors go online to announce it and present to a wider audience in the project’s very last webinar, especially the audience external to the project who want to explore possibilities for multiplying certain solutions proposed by URBAN-WASTE.
These Guidelines were drafted and published in order to support city managers and policy makers in replicating the URBAN-WASTE strategies in tourist cities. The Guidelines summarise the work that the project consortium done over the last 3 years including the initial mapping and identification of local stakeholders involved in waste management and tourism processes, community-based decision making, implementation of eco-innovative measures and the final environmental, social and economic impact assessments. These guidelines will allow city managers, including decision and policy makers, to understand the underlying liaisons between tourism and waste management processes and enable them to recreate some of the URBAN-WASTE processes in order to improve their local waste management practices and adapt them to their local tourism patterns.
The reader of these Guidelines will be walked through different phases of defining and creating waste management strategies, suggested methodology and expected outcomes of such strategies. It will provide them with the necessary knowledge, findings and observations that were done in the 11 pilots and proposed approaches and methodologies for reproducing and multiplying the URBAN-WASTE project’s achievements.
The webinar will take place on Wednesday, 29 May at 11.30 CET.
