BLUEISLANDS project

The BLUEISLANDS project aims to identify, address and mitigate the effect of the seasonal variation of waste generated on Mediterranean Islands as an effect of tourism.

In the summer season, Mediterranean Islands host a far bigger population. This is beneficial for the local economies, but it also places significant burden on the local infrastructures, especially for waste management systems.  By improving knowledge about waste streams, building common guidelines and improving synergies among MED Islands’ communities, the BLUEISLANDS project aims to promote sustainable tourism patterns and fuel local loops of circular economy.
