The Tenerife + Sustainable, Sustainable Development in Waste Management International Conference, is an initiative promoted by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water and Safety of the Council of Tenerife, which hopes to make the islands a global benchmark for waste management.
The Conference will take place on 9 and 10 June in the Tenerife Adán Martín Auditorium, and will bring together forty national and international experts. The Island of Tenerife will become a meeting point for three continents: Africa, America and Europe, with the aim of achieving a universal model for waste management. Over two days there will be seven round table discussions. Municipal social, economic and responsible agents together with renowned specialists and researchers on the subject, will debate vitally important environmental protection issues, including waste reduction, the improvement of selective collection, the utilisation of organic material, treatment prior to dumping, the safe elimination of municipal waste and raising civic awareness.
The aim of this conference is to take an in depth look at those measures necessary for making Tenerife an environmental benchmark for appropriate waste management, through a pioneering model in Macaronesia. This model supports innovation and can be replicated at an international level.
