The objective of the project is to promote education activities to the different agents of the CDW value chain, supporting their interaction, in order to promote a more sustainable value chain, in line with the principles of circular economy. This project aims at raising awareness about the prevention of CDW production as well as its recovery, by promoting its incorporation in sectors such as industry and construction, reducing its carbon footprint, reducing the extraction of natural resources and the diversion of waste to landfill. This project addresses an issue of public interest and represents an important contribution to raising public awareness of illegal dumping of CDWs, which may include hazardous waste, resulting in environmental liabilities and degradation of landscape.

This initiative was aimed to municipalities, construction and rehabilitation companies, designers and architects, waste management companies, university students in engineering and architecture.
