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.


The past months have been very active for the whole partnership, with a successful international conference in Brussels, the launch of a Charter of commitments, capacity building webinars and on-going studies on waste generation, marine litter and waste water in the pilot islands.

The studying phase of the project is focusing on measuring the correlation between tourism and waste generation through quantification, analysis of waste, assessment of its composition, and the impact of marine litter in beaches, seawaters and coasts relevant to micro plastics, as well as the influence of waste water during the high season tourist peak through short-term microalgae deployments.
