MED-InA, let's start!
It is in the utopia of today that tomorrow's solutions are.
This is how E3D-Environnement, the lead partner of the project, welcomed the consortium coming from Jordan, Spain, Tunisia, Lebanon, and France. The seven MED-InA partners represent a diversity of actors underlying the added value of such consortium for the project:
Jordan University of Science and Technology (JO)
American University of Beirut (LB)
E3D-Environnement company (FR)
AViTeM, public agency (FR)
The Greater Irbid Municipality (JO)
La Marsa Municipality and ATCOGEN (TN)
La Ribera Consortium (SP).
MED-InA aims to develop and roll out a Zero Waste methodology for public policies fostering citizen-centered waste reduction, reuse, and recycling in Mediterranean cities. The methodology will be implemented in three municipalities: La Marsa in Tunisia, Irbid in Jordan and La Ribera in Spain.
During the Kick-off Meeting, each partner presented its mission on the project:
AVITEM and the Jordanian University of Science and Technology (JUST) will be in charge of developing and adopting a Zero Waste strategy within the waste management plan of the three pilot municipalities. In this framework, exchanges with best-practices Zero Waste municipalities will be organized.
E3D-Environnement presented the GD6D methodology aiming at involving citizens in waste management. This methodology will be tested towards citizens in La Marsa, Irbid, and La Ribera.
AUB will organize a competition for MED start-ups aiming to promote innovation in the sector of the circular economy. It will be held in the three pilot municipalities too.
By involving citizens, municipalities, and start-ups, MED-InA has the ambitious objective to change habits towards Zero Waste Mediterranean cities. This would be achieved only through tight cooperation so … let’s start!
Stay tuned for not missing any news from the MED-InA project!
