About the event

What is the new EU action plan for the circular economy? What opportunities does the new national waste legislation bring to municipalities? How to reduce the total amount of waste and deal sustainably with biodegradable waste in cities?

In the new webinar from the Green Academy series, we will look at the latest trends in waste management:

  • Piotr Barczak (presentation in English) – waste expert of the European Environment Agency (EEB). In his presentation, he will introduce new European legislation and trends in waste management. He will also touch upon the coming new Circular Economy Action Plan by the European Commission.
  • Tomáš Hlavenka – founder of ASHPA, the company which helps municipalities and companies to implement a circular economy system. He studied waste management at Mendel University in Brno. From 2009 to 2015, he worked as the director of a company providing waste collection and management in the Mikulov region, where he introduced an innovative system for the collection of separated waste based on the principles of circular economy.
  • Jan Machančík – waste manager of Jihlava, the city awarded in 2020 the Waste Oscar for exceptional achievement in reducing the production of mixed municipal waste. In his presentation, he will focus on way how the city can support its citizens in minimizing waste generation and motivate them to reduce the amount of mixed municipal waste.
