The consortium WE-NET, co-funded by the Europe for Citizens programme, brings together 12 local authorities and civil society organisations from 8 different EU and Enlargement countries.

It aims at establishing a self-sustainable platform of dialogue and exchange to develop effective local policies and practices promoting the implementation of the circular economy model at the local level, with particular focus on recycling.

The general objective of the project is to facilitate knowledge transfer and build up a basis of further communication and cooperation beyond this project.

The recycling theme promoted by the action plays a central role within the overall sustainable development agenda, especially in respect with a rapidly growing urbanisation, environmental degradation, human security and well-being of future generations.

This project aims at directly involving in its activities more than 500 local institutions, civil society associations and ordinary citizens, with a particular attention to young people.

We can help educate our families and communities about the importance of recycling for our environment, and how each of us can make a difference for a better world by recycling"
