This year’s edition of the EU Green Week will include two partner events organised by ACR+ members.
On 13 May 2019, ACR+ member BCNEcologia will organise a Pay-as-you-throw workshop, which will be hosted by ACR+. Economic incentives play a key role in the sound implementation of the revised EU Waste Framework Directive. Experts from Waste4Think will discuss about the system’s issues and how it applies to different stakeholder groups.
On 16 May 2019, ACR+ member Navarra will hold a workshop on Good practices in waste prevention at the Delegation of Navarra in Brussels. The Parliament of Navarra adopted a law on waste and its taxation in June 2018 with the aim of developing prevention measures to produce less waste, to implement high-quality separate waste collection and to establish a new taxation system that penalises landfilling and creates a waste fund. During the workshop, organisers will introduce the new legal framework, together with good practices in waste prevention. The event will finish with an ACR+ wrap-up of good practices that could be exported to other regions.
On the related note, the organisers of the EU Green Week have announced a deadline extension to register a partner event to 29 March 2019. ACR+ invites all interested members to inform us if they wish to participate and to involve us.
In addition to supporting partner events, ACR+ will be involved in three of the events organised within the framework of the EU Green Week in Brussels. On May 15, the awards ceremony of the 2018 edition of the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) will serve as a preamble to the event. On the same day, but in the afternoon, the ACR+ team will host a session on mitigating the environmental impact of sporting events as part of the LIFE TACKLE project. The following day, ACR+ will give a presentation on the Urban Partnership for the Circular Economy (UAPCE) and its ambitious action plan to help cities deliver a genuine circular economy.
