While the participants are still digesting the information acquired during the URBAN-WASTE Final Conference that took place on 7 May and while the organisers are reporting on it, some good news for those who couldn’t attend it – two more webinars will still take place, with the first of the two exploring the reproducibility of European projects.
As it was already mentioned, the URBAN-WASTE Conference was pretty much of a success and the URBAN-WASTE consortium is very proud of it and happy with the outcomes and synergies made. Although the Conference attracted the attention of more than 150 people, there were still many who couldn’t make it to Brussels that day. This is why the URBAN-WASTE project will still offer two webinars in order to present the key findings and especially at this stage – the way forward.
The Conference on 7 May was also a great opportunity for synergies with external cities and regions to join the “movement” and those other local and regional authorities who started working on making tourism more sustainable by signing the Charter of Commitments which had its own spotlight at the Conference. For this webinar the project will highlight another synergy that was built during the project’s lifetime – the cooperation with ConsumeLess Med project which is very much alike in terms of objectives and targeted outcomes.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday, 28 May at 11.30 CET.
