CONFERENCE "TOWARDS A CIRCULAR ECONOMY AND SUSTAINABLE TOURISM ON ISLANDS"
11 April 2018 | European Parliament, Brussels
The Mediterranean region is the world's leading tourist destination. In the summer season, due to the annual tourist wave, mediterranean islands host a far greater population. This is beneficial for the local economies, but it also puts a huge burden on the local infrastructures, especially for waste management systems. Several policies and instruments address Coastal and Maritime activities, including tourism and waste management, and call for a more sustainable and cooperative approach.
BLUEISLANDS project and the SEARICA Intergroup of the European Parliament invite you to discuss these topics during the conference “Towards a circular economy and sustainable tourism on islands”. The event aims to: enhance mutual learning opportunities between islands and regions dealing with seasonal variation of waste and marine litter; build consensus on a shared path towards material resource resiliency, circular economy and sustainable tourism on islands.
Participation is free, but places are limited and registration is mandatory.
