Stakeholders participating in the 4th Regional Stakeholders Meeting in Malopolska were asked to provide suggestions on regulatory and legislative measures that can reduce the impact of these barriers and facilitate the transition to secondary raw resources. As the recognised barriers stakeholders pointed 5 types of barriers: legal, technical, economic, social and informational barriers. To help stakeholders in the identification process invited external expert presented the theory of existing barriers in developing circular economy and regional industrial symbiosis including social issues: food sharing and car and bike sharing concepts. Moreover, stakeholders listen to 2 presentations about the current waste management systems in 2 municipalities in the Malopolska Region: Zabierzow and Nowy Targ, which shared their experience from separate municipal waste collection and are looking for chances to initiate industrial symbiosis. Both municipalities have identified the potential for transition into a circular economy. Nowy Targ which is an area well know from furniture production and has a serious problem with air pollution caused by burning wood-based waste from the industry seeks for a solution based on introduction of a kind of motivation factor to discourage local manufactures from burning wood and perhaps reuse the leftover material.
