TANIA is hosting its final event on the 6th of October 2021 in Florence, at the Nana Bianca premises. The meeting will be held in hybrid mode (possibility to participate both physically and online) and will propose an open discussion on the topic of collaboration in the field of environmental remediation and how the regions involved in the project are managing the opportunities and challenges created.

Environmental remediation, the theme on which the TANIA project is based, is increasingly gaining importance across Europe. This is particularly evident from the new policies undertaken by the European Union, above all the new Green Deal. The new President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, outlined her 2019-2024 priorities, including her vision for a greener Europe: "Climate change, biodiversity, food security, deforestation and land degradation go together. We need to change the way we produce, consume and trade. Preserving and restoring our ecosystem must guide all our work" (Von der Leyen, 2019).

This vision underpins the proposal for a European Green Deal (EGD), striving to be the first climate-neutral continent. Becoming the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050 is the greatest challenge and opportunity of our time. To achieve this goal, the European Commission has presented the European Green Deal, the most ambitious package of measures that should enable European citizens and businesses to benefit from a sustainable green transition.

As for the programme of the meeting, the working session will take place on the morning of 6th October from 10.00 am to 12.00 pm and, among the others, will see the participation of high representatives of the Regional Government of Tuscany, Interreg Europe representatives, ISPRA (The Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Research) and two guest projects of the Interreg Europe programme closely connected with the themes of the project:

  • PERFECT project: integration of benefits of green infrastructure into planning and management for urban and rural areas.
  • COCOON project: development, integration and improvement of policy instruments for Land Fill management.
