Seeking answers to the challenges of integrated waste management
The 26th of October, from 3.30pm onwards, is wholly dedicated to public administrations and to municipal waste, with three blocks which will be presented and moderated by the lawyer Lluis Recoder, ex mayor of Sant Cugat and ex counsellor of Territorial Policy in the Catalan Generalitat.
The day is directed towards the politicians responsible for these areas, specialists in autonomous and local Spanish administrations, and managers of public services. The objective is to concentrate on and debate important aspects such as the application of new fiscal tools on infrastructure management that will allow us to reach the objectives for 2020.
Experiences such as those in Catalonia or the Basque country will be presented and debated, examining their most relevant aspects in the face of the new challenges that the EU has set in the context of development towards a model of circular economy.
