Charter of commitments for Sustainable Material Resource Management and Circular Economy
BLUEISLANDS is proud to present the "Charter of commitments for Sustainable Material Resource Management and Circular Economy", in collaboration with the project URBAN-WASTE. The document was presented at the international conference "Towards a circular economy and sustainable tourism on islands" on 11 April 2018, as the result of a shared vision to support sustainable tourism and waste management.
The BLUEISLANDS project aims to identify, address and mitigate the effect of the seasonal variation of waste generated on Mediterranean islands as an effect of tourism.
In the summer season, mediterranean islands host a far greater population. This is beneficial for the local economies, but it also places a great burden on the local infrastructures, especially for waste management systems. By improving knowledge about waste streams, building common guidelines and improving synergies among MED islands’ communities, BLUEISLANDS project aims to promote sustainable tourism patterns and fuel local loops of circular economy.
