Dissemination event of the project COHEIRS in Oristano
The Patto Territoriale Soc. Cons. A.r.l. Oristano is going to launch its dissemination event of the project COHEIRS today, 27 March at 16.00 at the “Sala consiliare” of the Province of Oristano. The aim of the event is to disseminate the project COHEIRS and its outcomes to the local communities.
Particular focus will be put on presenting the final citizens’ recommendations on the topic of environment and health that will be submitted to the European institutions.
The recommendations have been adopted last 13-15 March in Mesagne as a tool to bring citizens’ voice into the decision making process in the field of environment and health. As many as 100 ordinary citizens and representatives of local communities in Mesagne as well as representatives of the 17 partner organisations coming from 12 different countries in wider Europe have been contributed to drafting the document. More than 25 local workshops have been organised throughout the project to collect citizens’ opinions on the topic through the methodology of citizens’ panels.
Environmental and health issues have been brought from the local level to Mesagne in order to make participants share common problems and exchange ideas and best practices. The outcome of the three day event has therefore been a list of recommendations on:
1. Enhancing citizen participation in the environment and health field;
2. Urban sustainable development, green spaces and public health;
3. Air pollution and public health;
4. Water pollution and public health;
5. Agriculture and public health;
6. Waste management and public health – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
The dissemination event in Oristano will provide visibility to the recommendations and would involve the local communities to have their say and further contribute to the improvement of the document. Stay tuned and make your voice heard by giving your feedback.
