The INTHERWASTE’s final event is taking place online on 4 February 2021 from 09:00 to 13:00 CET. The event will open on a panel discussion on Environmental, Social and Economic Sustainability & Global Policies built from the local featuring a presentation of the Interreg Europe programme, the strategy of the Regional Government of Andalusia towards circular economy in 2030, and an overview of the role of UNESCO Cities in the global challenges. The project partners will then discuss the lessons learnt throughout the project and present a review of the Action Plans produced and their results. ACR+, as technical advisor of the project, will share reflections on waste management in heritage cities. A time will also be dedicated to success stories from other cities on two themes central to the project: waste reduction and reuse.

Participation is limited to 100 people on a first-come-first-served base. In case you would like to register to the event, you can send an email to [email protected]
