The partners of the project WE-NET, representing a consortium of 12 communities across Europe led by the City of Thiene, reunited from 2 to 5 May in Apulia Region (Italy) for the final international activity of a two-year process launched in 2015. More than 40 participants had the opportunity to exchange knowledge, experience and good practices on the topic of circular economy and plan testing activities at the local level.

***
The activity was also an occasion to further analyse more than 25 good practices collected at the local level and assess the overall two-year process developed in the framework of WE-NET. In terms of outcomes, the project produced more than 25 awareness raising and trainings processes in 12 communities, targeting youngsters and their families; more than 1000 participants directly involved in the activities; more than 50 000 people informed about the model of circular economy and the role of local actors in its implementation; knowledge and environmentally friendly behaviours increased and a set of recommendations drafted for European institution to bring local actors voice in policy debate around circular economy.

The outcomes of the project were showcased on the occasion of the seminar “Waste management and circular economy: what challenges for local actors? – the experience of the project WE-NET”. The event promoted by ISBEM – Istituto Scientifico Biomedico Euro Mediterraneo brought together local authorities, civil society associations, experts and ordinary citizens to discuss on the transferability of the outcomes of the project in an area where environmental issues are very much at stake.

WE-NET is one of ALDA’s key tools in promoting sustainability in local communities, with a particular focus on environmental issues. By bringing together local authorities and civil society associations to foster knowledge transfer, the project brought new solutions to local communities sharing the same problems and needs.
