Between 31 May and 1 June 2018 the BLUEISLANDS project partners gathered in a meeting hosted by the Council of Mallorca. All project partners had the opportunity to present their latest activities and share the next steps to be carried out. Visits of the waste management and incineration plants of Mallorca were also organised to better understand the solutions chosen to deal with the waste produced in Mallorca and other Balearic islands.  

Project partners discussed the methodology to be applied for the waste characterization study that will take place between June and November 2018 in 9 Mediterranean islands, to determine the extent of seasonality in municipal solid waste generation as an effect of tourism.

Over the past several months BLUEISLANDS project organised a successful international conference on sustainable tourism held at the European Parliament. The highlight of the conference was the signing ceremony of the Charter of Commitments for sustainable material resource management and circular economy. Additionally, four free capacity building webinars were held. The recordings of which are available here.

The third BLUEISLANDS newsletter will be published in the coming weeks featuring the latest research results. If you wish to receive it, subscribe here.
