On the 5th of December 2019, Bucharest 3rd District City Hall organised in Bucharest the first Expert city visit & ULG meeting within the project “Resourceful Cities”, financed by the URBACT Programme.

The project “Resourceful Cities” is an Action Planning Network of ten European cities (the 3rd District of Bucharest being one of the partners) that seeks to develop the next generation of urban resource centers to promote the positive economic, environmental and social impacts, notably for the circular economy. The network facilitates waste prevention, reuse, repair and recycling.

Due to the fact that PLASTECO project is implemented in line with the “European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”, Bucharest-Ilfov Regional Development Agency took the invitation to this event as an opportunity to build collaboration for the project outcomes.

The event gathered 15 participants that represented both public and private sector: public authorities, academic and research institutions, a cluster and a city competitiveness pole, associations engaged in the area of waste management and environment protection from Bucharest-Ilfov Region.

The overall goal, operational objectives and activities of PLASTECO project were disseminated to the relevant stakeholders gathered at this event, through a 20 minutes presentation, made by Andreea Brînzoi, member of ADRBI team.

The discussions that followed the presentation were very productive and all participants were surprised and pleasantly impressed by the theme of PLASTECO project.
