Technical Conference on Waste Management

Mission Zero Academy has been working with several municipalities within Spain, such as Torrelles de Llobregat, El Boalo, Cerceda, MataelpinoUsurbil, Astigarraga, and Hernani, who have already been fully certified by Mission Zero Academy with the Zero Waste Cities Certification. The Technical Conference will, thus, be a unique chance for the frontrunners in zero waste to talk about the challenges they have faced and to share the solutions they were able to implement.

The conference will also be a networking opportunity for municipalities all over Spain, an EU country that still has to meet EU recycling targets. Our goal is to promote collaboration in the context of a spread-out territory that gathers different realities in terms of waste management, recycling practices and bio waste separate collection systems.

Join Mission Zero Academy, experts, civil servants, and colleagues from all over Spain to learn and discuss zero waste solutions for municipal solid waste! 

For who? Civil servants, waste management entities, local decision-makers, interest groups, and other relevant stakeholders.
