R4R project: Networking event in Athens
Approximately 100 European experts on waste participated in the networking event of the Regions For Recycling (R4R) project, which was held from 12 to 14 December 2012 in Athens. R4R is a 3-year European project (2012-2014, www.regions4recycling.eu) aiming at enabling its partners to improve their recycling performance through consistent comparisons and an exchange of good practices. On 12 December 2012, a workshop was organised offering the opportunity to Greek regional and local authorities and key stakeholders to exchange views and learn more about waste management activities and good practices in other European Regions. The WASP Tool project was presented in this workshop, highlighting that prevention could be a complementary, not competitive option for waste minimization.
