The BLUEISLANDS project's goal is to identify, address and mitigate the effects of the seasonal variation of waste generation on Mediterranean islands as an effect of tourism, and establish the necessary conditions to fuel local loops of circular economy. 

Project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund, 2016-2019.


On 11 April 2018, ACR+ hosted an international conference entitled “Towards a circular economy and sustainable tourism on islands”, supported bt the Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup of the European Parliament. During the conference, Josep Maria Tost I Borràs, ACR+ President and Director of Agencia de Residus de Catalunia, presented the “Charter of commitments for sustainable material resources management and circular economy”, a declaration of intent to adapt the tourism sector to the environmental capacity of the areas of interest, developing strategies to reduce and manage tourism-generated waste.

A series of capacity building webinars took place in May. The covered topics were: Integrated Costal Zone Management, Circular Economy, Life Cycle Assessment and Sustainable Tourism. Presentations and recordings are available on the BLUEISLANDS' website.
