The project “Promoting ZEROWASTE” bearing the acronym “ZEROWASTE PRO” was officially launched in July 2013 aiming to capitalize on methods and tools that have been produced under other co-financed projects for zero waste management schemes at the municipal and regional level. The project will run until December 2014 and is funded by ERDF through the European Territorial Cooperation Programme MED 2007-2013 and National Resources. Lead partner is the EGTC EFXINI POLI - Network of European Cities for Sustainable Development. The 11 European organizations involved in the project will focus on the three main pillars of zerowaste philosophy, namely Prevention, Reuse and Recycling, promoting best practices and tools in the Municipalities and Regions whose ultimate goal should be the waste management with minimal financial and environmental cost.


Project activities:
- Guide on green waste management solutions
- Training guides and “Train the Trainers” course on green waste management solutions. The aim is to train officers of Local Government on alternative waste management practices in order ensure that this knowledge produced will “remain” in municipalities also after the end of the project.
- Educational Tool on Recycling, addressed to teachers
- On-line Networking Platform which will be a virtual meeting point of operators and scientists specialized in waste management
- Info-days, Workshops and Interregional Conferences in partner countries
- Newsletters
