The project focuses on two main elements related to the efficient use of resources: 1) energy and 2) waste. The aim is to raise awareness among the various target groups on the efficient processing of waste for energy generation (raising awareness of consumers to promote energy saving and less waste at source) and to more co-ordinated and efficient use of renewable energy sources.

Benefits of project results for the local environment:

Despite the necessary regulations and instructions on waste management at the level of the European Union (EU) and at the national level of the countries in the project area, the quantities of waste are increasing, threatening human health and the quality of the environment in which we live. At the same time, the costs of waste disposal are constantly increasing due to the increasing number of different types of waste, which represents an economic burden for many households. Waste management in the project area still poses a problem, leaving a lot of municipal waste away. From the cooperation, the local environment can expect, in the field of environmental protection, an important contribution to the sustainable management of the generated waste.
